Get the latest updates on screening
You will have the opportunity on both days to speak to representatives from the national antenatal and newborn (ANNB) screening programmes and Screening Quality Assurance Services (SQAS). Look out for ‘PHE Screening’ at stand number 18.
You will be able to find out:
- how to access all our e-learning modules
- how to book on a screening masterclass
- how to help us spend less on our printed leaflets
- what we're doing to reduce screening inequalities
We will be able to update you on all our national screening programmes and to answer any questions you have on screening guidance and our current projects.
Please encourage your friends and colleagues to visit us too and take the chance to subscribe to the PHE Screening blog to make sure you stay up to date with developments in all the ANNB programmes.
You will be able to pick up information packs that include up to date flyers of current work from all 6 programmes. And there will also be the chance to win a luxury ‘pamper hamper’ designed for hard working midwives!
