Acute diverticulitis is a common problem in the UK, however, current guidelines are not adequate to guide it’s management. Because good quality trials are inadequate, surgical units often adopt variable policies to manage this condition.

The national CADS audit aims to develop a multicentre prospective snapshot, looking at differences in the practice of surgeons across various centres and it’s impact on patients.
