National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) clinical report 2019

Reports | Published: 12 Sep 2019 | Author: HQIP

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) aims to improve the treatment of mothers and babies during their stay in a maternity unit by evaluating a range of care processes and outcomes in order to identify good practice and areas for improvement.

This clinical report presents measures of maternity and perinatal care based on births in English, Welsh and Scottish NHS services between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017. It builds on the NMPA’s previous report from 2015/16 with some additional measures.  It highlights areas that require monitoring, in particular around induction of labour, timing of birth and timely delivery of babies that are small for gestational age.
