The national antenatal screening team travelled across the country to deliver data workshops to give screening providers guidance on the submission of complete and accurate screening standards and key performance indicator data.

Screening key performance indicators: publication of the annual 2017 to 2018 data

A photo of a laptop with the words 'NHS screening programmes: KPI reports 2017 to 2018' can be seen with two women talking in the background.

We have published the annual screening data for the key performance indicators (KPIs) for the 2017 to 2018 screening year (1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018).

Screening resource cards move online

A screen grab of the new online version of PHE's resource cards. The words at the top say 'antenatal and newborn screening resource.' There is a timeline of the various screening tests and when they should be carried out. In smaller text near the bottom it says 'Click image to watch animated version' and 'click to start' inside a blue button.

We have a published a new online version of our resource cards, giving information about screening offered in pregnancy and to babies.
