Screening for infectious diseases in pregnancy

Screening for infectious diseases in pregnancy: standards to support the UK antenatal screening programme was published in August 2003. These generic and disease-specific standards cover screening for rubella antibody, syphilis, HIV and hepatitis B, the four infections currently included in the UK antenatal-screening programme.

For information on other aspects of antenatal screening, please visit the Web pages of the Antenatal Screening subgroup of the UK National Screening Committee.

The standards were initially developed in conjunction with the relevant Expert Advisory Committees in the Department and the UK National Screening Committee. Following consultation, the standards have been refined into a concise document which will complement the overarching Clinical Guidelines on Antenatal Care due for publication by NICE in October 2003.

This document has been produced in an electronic format and includes links to many sources of additional information.
