NHS Newborn Hearing Screening Programme

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.

Finding out if easy guides to screening meet the needs of pregnant women who have learning disabilities

An evaluation of our Screening tests for you and your baby easy guides will help us to share good practice that will benefit pregnant women with learning disabilities across the country.

Level 3 diploma for newborn hearing screeners has been well received in Birmingham

"I do feel that I have learnt a lot through working within a clinical environment - much more than I would have done without doing the diploma - so this has definitely developed my role as Newborn Hearing Screener.  It has given me confidence and broadened my knowledge."

The level 3 Diploma for Health Screeners launched on 1 April 2016. This national qualification is now a requirement for non-professionally regulated staff working in abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, diabetic eye screening and newborn hearing screening.

Thank you for all of your hard work this year
