The National OPAT Outcomes Registry provides the most comprehensive picture of OPAT service provision in the UK. NORS correlates reports and data from all submitting OPAT services. It offers an overview of the number of OPAT centres in the
UK and Ireland, models of service, number of patients admitted to OPAT centres, treatments days saved
and other vital audit data such as most commonly used agents and proportion of successful outcomes.
You will not be able to enter data to NORS unless you have registered to use the site.
