On behalf of the NNAP Project Board, we are delighted to inform you that the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has now published the NNAP 2016 Annual Report on 2015 data and an update of ‘Your Baby’s Care’, the booklet for parents and carers that accompanies it.   
The NNAP Project Board is grateful for all of the efforts of neonatal unit and network staff across England, Scotland and Wales who have continued to enter the crucial data which ensures that the NNAP is able to produce reports that have a strong evidence base which reflects neonatal care.

NNAP Online has been developed in response to consultations with the neonatal community which highlighted the desire to be able to view and compare the results of NNAP analysis in a more accessible and useful manner.  
NNAP Online will allow users to:
view an overall annual summary report for a chosen neonatal network or neonatal unit for 2015 or 2014 data
view and compare the results for specific NNAP audit measures for different units or networks
easily identify network and unit results via the interactive caterpillar and outlier plots

The 2016 NNAP/NDAU Collaborators’ Meeting

The 2016 NNAP/NDAU Collaborators' meeting took place on 18 April 2016 at the Cavendish Conference Centre in London. Over 120 people attended the event, including parents, multi-disciplinary neonatal unit staff members, neonatal network representatives and commissioners.

The event offered a great opportunity for networking and learning more about how data is being used to monitor and improve neonatal care.  Please see below a short video which captures some of the reflections of attendees along with videos of the presentations delivered on the day.  A copy of the programme of events for the day is also available for information.
