Keeping you and your baby safe at your newborn bloodspot screening appointment

Taking part in screening is something you can do to look after your baby’s health.

Healthcare staff follow infection and prevention control guidance. This means staff follow strict hand cleaning routines and clean all clinic areas and equipment regularly.

Talk to your midwife about how screening will take place within your Health Board. They will explain what they are doing to keep you and your baby safe.

Remember, to stop the spread of infection, do not attend for screening if you are unwell.

Contact your midwife, if you have any questions or concerns about your baby’s screening appointment.
