The NMPA – evaluating care processes and outcomes to identify good practice and areas for improvement

Harriet Aughey

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) is a large-scale audit of NHS maternity services across England, Scotland and Wales. Using high quality data, the NMPA evaluates a range of care processes and outcomes in order to benchmark against national standards and recommendations where these exist and to identify good practice and areas for improvement for women and babies. The audit is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) on behalf of NHS England and the Scottish and Welsh Governments. It consists of a continuous clinical audit, the first report of which was published in 2017, an organisational survey and a series of periodic audits on specific topics (‘sprint audits’).
