Neonatal data collection is carried out by The Neonatal Survey for the East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber regions and a similar system is used by the Northern Neonatal Network for the Northern region. The TIMMS group is responsible for data collection in the three British regions in collaboration with the Northern Neonatal Network in the Northern region.
