Regional screening program

Here in the West Midlands, a regional mapping program has already been completed. This provides a baseline assessment of the Antenatal Screening provision in each of the 20 units here in West Midlands, identifying gaps that need to be addressed.

Specifically, it has concentrated on 6 main areas:

1. Down's Syndrome Screening
2. Neural Tube Defects
3. Haemoglobinopathies
4. Serology Screening
5. Infection Screening
6. Gestational Diabetes

This data is in the process of being analysed with a report due in the next 2 months. This information will then be disseminated back to the region, as well as serving as a preliminary report for the national screening program.
