First evaluation of sickle cell screening programme published
The first evaluation of the NHS Sickle Cell Screening Programme has found that it is successfully identifying newborn babies with sickle cell disease. The screening programme, established in 2002, enables the early identification of infants with sickle cell disease. Once children are identified with the disease, early entry into care allows a timely offer of penicillin prophylaxis, a preventative measure against severe infections in children with sickle cell disease, and education and support for parents, both of which are known to reduce morbidity and mortality.
