Organisational Survey

The NMPA organisational survey provides an overview of maternity and perinatal care provision by NHS maternity services in all settings across England, Scotland and Wales at the start of 2017. The survey covers midwife-led and consultant-led maternity units, neonatal units, community midwifery and homebirths. The survey findings will help interpret the NMPA clinical audit data and identify organisational factors which may contribute to variation.

Data collection for the first NMPA organisational survey took place from January to March 2017. A follow-up survey will be conducted early in 2019.
