Data Quality Assurance

The Data Quality Assurance (DQA) team is responsible for evaluating and ensuring Scottish Morbidity Record (SMR) datasets are accurate, consistent and comparable across time and between sources. The team also quality assures non-SMR related data, for example, assessing the application of Cancer Waiting Times guidelines.


The DQA Team have now published the findings from our 2016 National Audit of SMR04 data. You can find the audit report here. We have also recently commenced a National Audit of SMR02 data which will conclude in 2018.
