National Neonatal Audit programme (NNAP)

The NNAP supports professionals, families and commissioners to improve care provided by neonatal services who look after babies born too early, with a low birth weight or who have a medical condition requiring specialist treatment.

Established in 2006, the NNAP is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), funded by NHS England, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government, and is delivered by the RCPCH. We are currently contracted to deliver the NNAP from April 2017 to April 2021.

The NNAP assesses whether babies admitted to neonatal units in England, Scotland and Wales receive consistent high quality care. We identify areas for quality improvement in relation to the delivery and outcomes of care.
