This edition of the journal contains a comprehensive review of the National Audit Projects (NAPs) from the United Kingdom.1 This review is important for anaesthesiology in South Africa, as it provides the history and evolution of NAPs in the United Kingdom, the methodology adopted to establish the incidence of uncommon, yet important adverse outcomes, and the approach taken in establishing NAP priorities.1 South Africa has the infrastructure and the personnel to conduct successful NAPs. These data would be especially advantageous to understanding anaesthesia related-morbidity in low-to middle income countries. We propose that South Africa adopt a similar ‘audit’ process to the UnitedKingdom NAPs in South Africa.
