When? Wednesday 22 March 2023, 12:30 to 13:30 BST
Where? Zoom

A BSGM 'Lunch and Learn' online session, bringing together members from across the Society to learn and discuss topics of interest to all

Dr David Elliman, clinical lead for National NIPE & NBS Screening Programmes, Consultant Paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital and Hon. Consultant in Community Child Health, Whittington Health & CNWL, and Nick Meade, director of policy at Genetic Alliance UK will be delivering this session to provide an overview of of the current NHS newborn blood spot screening programme.

This talk is about the existing clinical newborn screening programme to inform the BSGM membership about the current situation and to provide context for productive discussions about future possibilities. This is the first of a series of talks that we are planning on newborn screening. Please join us to learn more about this exciting programme.

We aim for this initiative to be genuinely useful to members and serve as a point of collegial conversation across professions and geographies; topics will be selected that are of broad interest and feedback is welcome as we develop the initiative.

All sessions will be recorded and available via the BSGM website for those unable to attend live.

If you are unable to attend and have any questions you would like to submit in advance please send them to Flora Joseph.
