Benefits of NED

Whether you’re a unit manager, clinical lead, trainee or consultant, NED is an extremely beneficial resource.




NEDi2 captures a wider dataset for OGD, Colonoscopy and Flexible Sigmoidoscopy as well as extra procedure types including ERCP, EUS and enteroscopy. The dataset will support audit and KPI reporting in line with recent BSG and ESGE guidance on quality assurance of upper GI endoscopy, ERCP and EUS. A broader range of colonoscopy metrics is also supported. The NEDi2 dataset was developed following extensive consultation with the UK endoscopy community and ERS manufacturers.


NED upload process

Data is extracted from a service's local Endoscopy reporting system (ERS). Reports sent are already anonymised, and only include a patient's age and gender, removing the need to anonymise data on NED. Consequently, it will not be necessary to seek the patient's consent. Any reports sent via live compliant software will also be recorded into JETS, meaning double procedure entry is not needed for trainees on the certification pathways. An updated list of ERS' that are currently compliant and using live software versions, along with criteria to maintain this status, can be found on the NED website.
