We are running virtual workshops between 11 May and 24 June 2021 to support the SCID screening evaluation, which begins on 6 September 2021.
Lauren qualified as a children’s nurse in 2008 and has since worked as a senior neonatal intensive care nurse and a clinical research nurse.
She joined Public Health England (PHE) in 2020 as a project lead in the newborn blood spot screening programme.
Lauren continues to practice as a neonatal intensive care nurse and remains passionate about providing high quality care and improving healthcare outcomes in babies.

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. PHE also hosts the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) secretariat and supports the work of the committee.
Find out more about PHE Screening and this blog.
