National Maternity and Perinatal Audit: Clinical report 2017

Reports | Published: 09 Nov 2017 | Author: HQIP

The NMPA measures a range of care processes and outcomes and provides these data to maternity providers to facilitate quality improvement. Not all measures are accompanied by a national standard or acceptable ranges, and the NMPA does not limit its set of audit measures to only those that have ‘auditable standards’. Very few such standards exist in maternity that can be measured via a national audit.

The purpose of the continuous audit is to:

  • stimulate thought among healthcare professionals, managers, commissioners and policy-makers
  • lead people to ask challenging questions and discuss and reflect locally, regionally and nationally
  • allow maternity services and commissioners to identify priority areas for improving outcomes and productivity
