Our new report presents findings from services responsible for conducting child protection medical assessments. It shows positive national results in many areas, but a need to better protect our safeguarding workforce.
Dr Emily Parker is one of our new Clinical Fellows with the Clean Air Fund Partnership, and in her first blog, she describes how doctors are taking a more critical look at the impact of air pollution on children's health.
We hope you can join us on 25-27 March for our major event. With the input of more than 35 specialty groups, inspiring speakers and practical workshops, you can update your knowledge on what matters to you.
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.
These illustrate how hospitals have used the audit to identify and implement quality improvement activities - and improve patient care. They are published 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.
For parents and carers - 'Your baby's care', 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.
