The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has published the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA); its first annual clinical report. The report presents a set of 16 outcomes for births between 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2016 in England, Scotland and Wales. This clinical report is a ground-breaking collaboration between three Royal Colleges and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The audit, the largest of its kind in the world, presents a comprehensive overview of the state of maternity care across Britain. It has been developed using electronic data which midwives, doctors, other healthcare professionals and informatics departments enter as part of their everyday practice.
