New leaflets on infectious diseases in pregnancy available

The NHS Infectious Diseases in Pregnancy Screening (IDPS) Programme has published 3 new leaflets on HIV, hepatitis B and syphilis.

'Syphilis: what does my positive screening result mean?' leaflet.
1 of the 3 new IDPS leaflets

The clear, concise leaflets were developed with input from clinicians involved in the IPDS pathway and members of the programme's clinical forum of screening midwives and specialist nurses.

The leaflets cover the main issues that  women need to understand about their result and condition and offer further sources of information to support them throughout their screening pathway.

They are intended to be used to support the discussions between the screening coordinator or specialist nurse with women who are screen positive for HIV, hepatitis B or syphilis and women already known to have HIV or hepatitis B.

The three leaflets are available to download  from GOV.UK and translated versions will soon be available.
