We are pleased to announce that the commissioning framework for the Newborn Blood Spot Screening Programme and screening elements of child health records departments is now ready for use across England.
These frameworks have been updated to reflect the publication of the serious incidents guidance and should be used in preference (Dec 2010).
These documents follow extended consultation with relevant stakeholders and recommendation for use in the English NHS from the UK NSC. They are also available from the Quality Assurance section of the UK Screening Portal.
This document will be updated regularly. Please consult the website for the latest version.
