National Neonatal Audit Programme

One in seven 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.
The NNAP uses routinely collected data to support quality improvement in neonatal units. Our 2018 annual report on 2017 data is now available.

These illustrate how hospitals have used the audit to identify and implement quality improvement activities - and improve patient care.
NNAP Online is our interactive reporting tool - so you can view and compare the audit's results across England and Wales.

For parents: What does NNAP do for you and your baby?

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.
