Screening

Screening is a process of identifying apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition. They can then be offered information, further tests and appropriate treatment to reduce their risk and/or complications arising from the disease or condition.

The newborn and infant physical examination (NIPE) screening programme aims to identify risk and enables support to be provided on an individual need basis. The screening co-ordinator at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust will support pregnant women and their families throughout the process by ensuring that any positive results are received in a timely manner and that the support and information is given in order to promote informed choice and decision making.

The screening co-ordinator is also responsible for the implementation of audit and monitoring of local screening programmes in line with the National Screening Committee Standards.

You can read about the different screening tests online here, where you can also download the information in several different languages. Or click here to watch the video including in BSL or different languages and read more.
