  • Why the SGA was missed (if possible).
  • If there are any individual training issues, scanning resources, inconsistent use of growth assessment programme/SGA guideline.

The aim for the overall audit is to:

  • Identify themes/system issues.
  • Inform and focus service provision.
  • Provide evidence on local needs and issues to inform improved service provision e.g. scan accuracy.
