Our Aim

NeoTRIPS is a national neonatal study group, which aims to improve neonatal care for patients and families through large scale quality improvement projects.

NeoTRIPS was set up in London in 2019 and has had a central rotational committee including many trainees over the last few years – many of whom now work as neonatal consultants.

NeoTRIPs has now expanded nationally to continue developing collaborative projects across the UK

NeoTRIPS harnesses the power of enthusiastic trainees rotating between hospitals and provides research and quality improvement opportunities in line with the curriculum from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

Projects are developed to answer pertinent neonatal questions, targeting large patient numbers over short timeframes using the power of the trainee network.

NeoTRIPS aims to empower paediatric trainees to take on lead roles locally and nationally, developing skills in research and quality improvement.

Project proposals

Dear NeoTRIPs Network, 


This month we are calling for project proposals for the upcoming year. If you are interested in proposing a project then please complete the project form below. 


Submissions are being accepted until 15th October.



As a project lead you will be supported by the central committee and get to lead a “national multi-site research/QI project”. We aim to present and publish projects and as the lead you will be encouraged and supported in doing this. You ideally need a consultant that supports your proposal but we can discuss this if you don’t have one. You can also apply with an idea even if you don’t want to lead the project, but please make this clear on the form. 



As an example, our recent neonatal sepsis project and probiotic use project have both been published in the last 6 months. Some of the initial data from the NIC-TECH survey that was completed earlier this year was presented at the jENS international conference this year in Rome.
