UK Neonatal Partnership Board

This is a forum for organisations leading on national maternity, neonatal and perinatal programmes of work, facilitating consistency in implementing services and initiatives that influence the care of babies and their families.

The UK Neonatal Partnership Board (formerly known as the UK Neonatal Programme Board) was set up to provide opportunities for shared learning and better alignment of activities, and to support the development and delivery of national quality improvement programmes and dissemination of outputs relevant to neonatal care.
