NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Programme

A failsafe officer is for life, not just for Christmas

I’m the antenatal and newborn screening coordinator at Northampton General Hospital. That means I’m responsible for making sure we offer and carry out all antenatal and newborn screening tests  correctly for mothers and babies in our care.

Can you help us make our sickle cell and thalassaemia ‘at risk’ leaflets better?

Are you involved in antenatal sickle cell and thalassaemia (SCT) screening? Do you counsel women and couples at risk of having a baby with a significant haemoglobin disorder? Are you aware of all the resources available to support your counselling?
