We have three exciting new Officer and Assistant Officer roles open to members - in climate change, careers and child protection. Plus vacancies on a new general paediatrics committee and posts especially for SAS doctors and trainees.
The front cover of our Epilepsy12 organisational and clinical audits report for 2023 embodies the spirit of resilience. The documents give insight into the diagnosis and care of children and young people with epilepsy, and the organisation of services.
Join us on 14 November in London for our first 'listening event'. The CPD-accredited day has the collective wellbeing and working lives of paediatricians at its heart, and we want to hear your stories.
Some babies in the UK need specialist care when they are born. They may be born too early, with a low birth weight or have a medical condition. Since 2006, our clinical audit aims to improve care to these babies.
This free, virtual event is an opportunity to hear about the audit's latest results and recommendations, discuss the future direction of NNAP, get insights from neonatal teams on their QI projects and hear from speakers about developments in neonatal QI and research.
The NNAP case studies illustrate how hospitals have used the audit to identify and implement quality improvement activities - and improve patient care. These can be found on QI Central, RCPCH’s quality improvement hub.
Our new interactive dashboard shows data on the 10 NNAP performance metrics, and will be updated each quarter. You can view results by neonatal unit, Integrated Care System / Health Board (Wales and Scotland) and neonatal network.
To ensure we do not introduce biases to our audit's data, the National Data Opt Out (which allows patients in England to opt out of their information being used for purposes beyond their direct care) does not apply to NNAP.
Our privacy notices outline how we use your baby's information for our audit. They explain how you can choose that your baby’s information not be used for NNAP.
For parents and carers - your guide to NNAP's report
We ask doctors and nurses to record data about your baby, such as temperature, screening for eye disorders and medicines, as well as consultation with you. We describe areas that are good, and that could be better. This helps hospitals, neonatal networks, and those who plan healthcare, improve care for these babies.
