We've just updated guidance for the newborn blood spot programme.
New blood spot cards will start to be used from mid-October 2018.

We launched a 6 week consultation to ask stakeholders for their views on the proposed changes to our bloodspot cards. The consultation report contains a summary of the responses and identifies and responds to the main themes that emerged.
