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.
You can now view the latest NNAP Annual Report 2018 - on 2017 data. The NNAP uses routinely collected data to support quality improvement in neonatal units.
We ask doctors and nurses to record data such as babies' temperature, screening for eye disorders and medicines, as well as consultation with parents.
NNAP Online is a resource that helps you view and compare results across the country.

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

We monitor whether the care that has been provided to babies and their families matches up to professionally agreed standards.

By describing areas which are good, and those which could be better, the NNAP helps hospitals, neonatal networks, and those who plan healthcare, to improve neonatal care.
