National Neonatal Audit Programme summary report on 2021 data
Published: 10 Nov 2022
The National Neonatal Audit Programme (NNAP) has published its summary report on 2021 data. Based on data relating to babies discharged from neonatal care between January and December 2021, the report assesses whether babies admitted to neonatal units receive consistent high-quality care in relation to the NNAP audit measures that are aligned to a set of professionally agreed guidelines and standards.
The audit reports:
Key outcomes of neonatal care: (mortality, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, late onset bloodstream infection, necrotising enterocolitis and preterm brain injury),
Measures of optimal perinatal care (birth in the right place, antenatal steroids, antenatal magnesium sulphate, deferred cord clamping and normal temperature on admission),
Maternal breastmilk feeding (during admission and at discharge), parental partnership, neonatal nurse staffing levels, and
Other important care processes (screening for retinopathy of prematurity and follow-up at two years of age).
