Nick Johnstone-Waddell

Nick Johnstone-Waddell has worked in screening since 2001. He started with the newborn hearing screening programme back when it was still a pilot project and helped to develop the first national screening IT system.

He is now responsible for public and professional information for all the national population screening programmes, including leaflets and online content. He strongly believes in the need for simple, clear information to support informed choice and is always looking for new ways to get our messages across.

Nick’s background is in psychology and mental health research. He lives in Manchester and enjoys long walks with his family and dog.

Say hello to us at the Royal College of Midwives conference!

This year’s Royal College of Midwives (RCM) conference starts today in Manchester with more than 3,500 delegates attending. PHE Screening has a stand where we will be updating delegates on all the antenatal and newborn national screening programmes and answering any questions they may have.

Get animated about our new screening resource

We have worked with the NHS Choices video team and an animation company to produce a new screening animation, which in just 2 ½ minutes explains all the types of screening offered during pregnancy and for newborn babies.
