I attended an excellent workshop held by the NHS Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme (FASP) to inform new laboratory and screening division staff about the Down’s syndrome Quality Assurance Support Service (DQASS). The presentations from the workshop are included below.
To support the implementation of the Level 3 Diploma for Health Screeners, we can now offer more than 1 place on our forthcoming half-day update sessions for each local abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), diabetic eye (DES) and newborn hearing screening programme (NHSP).
A new national IT system to support the NHS Newborn Hearing Screening Programme (NHSP) will go live on 1 December 2016.
My days are very varied working for the Screening Quality Assurance Service (SQAS) team across the North of England, with lots of travelling involved.
