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.

Recruiting regional leads for national audit

UK NIC-Tech is a NeoTRIPs national audit. We will be mapping the inter- and intra-regional variations in devices and digital systems used in UK neonatal units.

Who can take part?

We want to include all UK neonatal units of all levels. We are collecting unit level data only (so no information about individual patients). We are aiming to identify one local lead at each unit (either a trainee doctors at any level, non-training grade doctor or ANNP).

How do I find out more/get involved?
