I’m the Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Lead at Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital. For the past year I’ve been on secondment as national project lead for the NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia (SCT) Screening Programme.

Public Health England (PHE) provides support and advice to the NHS-led national screening programmes. These programmes identify apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition, enabling earlier treatment and informed decisions.
