SNAP-2: EpiCCS will be the second Sprint National Anaesthesia Project, managed by the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia Health Services Research Centre (NIAA-HSRC) in conjunction with the UCL/UCLH Surgical Outcomes Research Centre (SOuRCe). SNAP-2: EpiCCS will describe the epidemiology of perioperative risk and outcome, and critical care referral and admission after inpatient surgery in the UK. A secondary aim is to estimate the clinical effectiveness of planned postoperative critical care admission as an intervention to reduce postoperative morbidity.
