Welcome to SPARCS: The Severn and Peninsula Audit and Research Collaborative for Surgeons

This website will guide you through the previous achievements and aims of SPARCS, where you will see the benefits of joining us. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the many exciting projects that are on offer at the moment – or why not make a suggestion for a new study?

For new projects to get involved with see the Get Involved section!


The ORCHESTRA audit has been really successful at recruiting patients from paediatric surgical centres but we struggled to get patients treated by adult surgeons/ urologists- only 18 out of 331. We are going to have a second data collection period from March 1st to May 31st 2015 and we would be really grateful if you could publicise it amongst your collaboratives.  GET INVOLVED:
