Kate Israel has thoroughly enjoyed her secondment with PHE working in the newborn blood spot team. Here she looks back at her time with us.
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’ve just published an updated version of the newborn blood spot (NBS) screening programme handbook for health professionals.
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.

The PHE Screening team
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.
