Welcome to NNAP Online, the interactive reporting tool for the National Neonatal Audit Programme

The National Neonatal Audit programme (NNAP) was established in 2006 to support professionals, families and commissioners in improving the provision of care provided by neonatal services which specialise in looking after babies who are born too early, with a low birth weight or who have a medical condition requiring specialist treatment. The NNAP is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), funded by NHS England, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government and is delivered by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH).

The NNAP produces yearly national reports, the latest of which is the NNAP 2017 Annual Report on 2016 data which was published on Thursday 21 September 2017. The Annual Report, and the parent booklet 'Your baby's care' that accompanies it, can be viewed by clicking on the images of the report covers below. The NNAP has developed this online reporting tool with the purpose of making the NNAP data more accessible and interactive. It also provides downloadable unit posters that can be displayed within neonatal units.

This online tool is open to anyone and has no login or password restrictions. By using the menu functions on the left of this screen it is possible to choose to:

  • view an overall annual summary report for a chosen neonatal network or neonatal unit for 2016, 2015 or 2014 data
  • view and compare the results for specific NNAP audit measures for different units or networks
  • view, via the outlier analysis section, whether any given unit's 2016 results are, to any degree, outside of the expected average range
  • download a unit specific poster of NNAP results

The NNAP project board hopes that this tool will further enhance the ability of the audit to encourage the sharing of best practice and to stimulate quality improvement activities for the benefit of babies and their parents.
