BANS is a national survey which collects, analyses and reports information about patients receiving Artificial Nutrition Support (ANS) in hospital and the community.

BANS aims to audit nutrition support modalities across the UK and publish national and regional findings. It will do this by:

  • Monitoring at national and regional level the growth of Artificial Nutrition Support (ANS) in hospitals and the community
  • Tracking treatment outcomes
  • Establishing the structure of artificial nutrition support services (ANS) in the UK
  • Identifying problems associated with the use/lack of ANS
  • Assessing standards of care
  • Publishing an annual report and scientific papers in the medical literature that bring these findings into the public domain
  • Reviewing practice against agreed guidelines
