National Neonatal Audit Programme 2016 Annual Report on 2015 data
Published: 27 Sep 2016
Monitoring the standard of care provided by specialist neonatal units is essential to inform efforts to give all babies the best possible chance of surviving and reaching their full potential. The monitoring is achieved through the National Neonatal Audit Programme (NNAP), which encourages individual neonatal units and regional networks to deliver the very highest levels of care to babies and families by reporting their outcomes against standards described by professional organisations.
The key aims of the NNAP 2016 audit are:
To assess whether babies admitted to NNUs in England, Scotland and Wales receive consistent high quality care in relation to the NNAP audit measures that are aligned to a set of professionally agreed guidelines and standards
To identify areas for quality improvement in NNUs in relation to the delivery and outcomes of care
