Clinical audit results: overview for sites and trusts/boards

This page shows results for all measures together per site or per trust/board. If a result is missing, this is because the site or trust/board did not pass our quality checks for this measure. Please refer to the NMPA Measures Technical Specification for exact definitions of the measures.

For 2017/18 results, Data quality and completeness limited the number of English trusts that could be included in this report. Therefore, it is not possible to report a mean that is representative of the three countries combined (the GB mean). The NMPA therefore asks audiences to refrain from interpreting that aggregate trust and board mean as being representative of a GB mean. Further information is available in the full report.

What is a spine chart?

Spine charts are useful to view results for measures in the context of other relevant measures at a selected site or trust/board, rather than in isolation.

Spine charts show the rates of all measures for the site or trust/board you have selected, and how these compare to the average of all sites or trusts/boards included in each measure. They also give an idea of the overall distributions of rates, and if the rates of the selected site or trust/board fall outside of the expected range. They are essentially slices of the funnel plot for each measure at the point of the site or trust/board you have selected.

Please use the buttons below to choose either site or trust/board level overview, and then select a maternity unit or trust/health board from the dropdown list in order to view a spine chart of its results across all measures compared to the national average.
