Performance Indicators

A bi-annual performance monitoring assessment known as performance indicators is undertaken by Antenatal Screening Wales in collaboration with health boards.  This gives information about compliance with Antenatal Screening Wales standards and provides the information on which action plans for improvement should be developed in the health boards.

Antenatal Screening Coordinators, Maternal and Child Governance Leads and Ultrasound Obstetric Leads work closely with ASW to implement and maintain Antenatal Screening Wales standards in their health boards.
