Welcome to the NMPA website

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) is a large scale audit of NHS maternity services across England, Scotland and Wales, which started in 2016. The NMPA aims to support improvements in the care for women and babies by providing national figures and enabling comparison between maternity services.

Results of the clinical audit and organisational surveys can be viewed and downloaded in a range of formats, including interactive tables and graphs, and audit reports. Resources for participating maternity services and answers to frequently asked questions are also provided. 

We hope you find the NMPA website useful. Please contact us if you have suggestions for further additions to the site.
