Speech and language therapy referrals following Bayley-III developmental assessment on ex-preterms
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance recommends multidisciplinary team input during enhanced developmental surveillance for up to two years corrected age in ex-preterm children. However, achieving this may be challenging because of resource constraints. There is a lack of nationally comparable data on neonatal follow-up programmes and outcomes. This article describes a service evaluation of a local neonatal follow-up programme and the role of quality assurance while aspiring to meet NICE recommendations.
