What PHE Screening blogged about in March 2018

In March 2018 we published 12 screening blogs including an update on how to order leaflets from our new national print supplier, a call out for views on our screening cards for midwives and several updates to professional screening standards.

Here’s a list of every blog issued over the month, links so you can read (or re-read) them and a brief description of what they’re about.
