A message from our NMPA Lead

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit: NMPA Lead

My name is George Dunn and I am the Audit Lead for the NMPA. I have been working in clinical audit for 5 years, previously as Project Manager for the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) at both the Royal College of Physicians and King’s College London.

I joined the NMPA team in October 2019, and I am really excited to be able to use my experience of managing projects in high profile national clinical audits in order to contribute to the NMPA, which plays such an important role in improving the quality of care received by women and babies. Managing a programme of work which includes the NMPA annual report, and sprint audits on perinatal mental health and multiple births (to name only two!) is something that I am really looking forward to. I hope these valuable outputs, produced by an excellent multidisciplinary team, will be extremely relevant to a wide range of different groups, and my role not only involves making sure these outputs are delivered, but also that they are communicated in an accessible way to all interested audiences.

I am really keen to ensure that the NMPA works for those who are engaged with quality improvement in maternity and perinatal care, whether it is clinicians wanting to improve the quality of care provided at their hospital, or women and family members who are keen to ask questions of the care they received, or may go on to receive. If you have any suggestions of how the NMPA could further help, or would just like to find out more, please do feel free to contact me. .
