Reports | Published: 10 Aug 2017

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) is a national audit of the NHS maternity services across England, Scotland and Wales, commissioned in July 2016 by HQIP.

The NMPA consists of three seperate but related elements:

  • An organisational survey to provide an overview of maternity and neonatal care provision in England, Scotland and Wales
  • A continuous prospective clinical audit of a number of key measures to identify unexpected variation between service providers or regions
  • A programme of periodic audits ons pecific topics (‘sprint audits’)

The NMPA organisational report presents a snapshot of maternity and neonatal care provision at the start of 2017, based on information submitted by every NHS Trust and board in England, Scotland and Wales. As well as providing insight into current service delivery, the information collected will, for the first time, enable evaluation of clinical outcomes and processes within their organisational context as part of the NMPA clinical audit.
