Newborn Bloodspot Screening Wales (NBSW) holds a database of newborn bloodspot screening sample takers in Wales as part of its quality assurance processes.
This database is used as a mechanism to monitor the quality of the newborn bloodspot screening programme and to distribute information to sample takers. Individual sample taker performance reports are now produced for registered sample takers.
The database holds information about health professionals as sample takers. Personal details are held securely and confidentially and are not released outside of the programme.
All sample takers should complete newborn bloodspot screening training before taking any samples.
