From 2020, pregnant women will get screening information in digital format by default.

As part of our project to move to a digital version of our Screening Tests For You and Your Baby leaflet, we are planning an event for antenatal and newborn screening co-ordinators on 2 October.

The event will be in Birmingham (within a short walk from New Street Station) to make it as easy as possible for colleagues to get there from around England. It will be from 12pm to 4pm, starting with lunch, and will cover:

  • overview of the project so far
  • results from user research and focus groups
  • demonstration of the new digital information
  • what we are doing to prevent any women from being disadvantaged
  • preparations from the sites getting ready to pilot the new information
  • plans for the next phase of the project
  • opportunity to ask questions to the PHE Screening team

The move to digital screening information is a large and complex undertaking which will have a major impact on all antenatal and newborn screening services. We hope that as many of you as possible will join us at this event to hear more and help shape this exciting project.

Please sign up for the event by contacting Louise.Toal@phe.gov.uk at PHE Screening.
