Audit plays a central role within the centralised cleft care in Great Britain and Ireland.  Audit participation provides a means of measuring performance against agreed standards, supports best practice and improves patient care.  

The Cleft Registry and Audit NEtwork (CRANE) Database is the national cleft audit organisation for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. More information about CRANE can be found on this page.
