Do easy guides to screening meet the needs of pregnant women who have learning disabilities?

PHE easy guides

Do you work with women with learning disabilities? Can you help PHE with their online survey? Publishing easy guides is one way PHE aims to reduce inequalities, by allowing everybody to get the information they need to make informed decisions about screening.

With support from PHE Screening, NHS England is beginning an evaluation of how information on antenatal and newborn screening is provided to women with learning disabilities in London. They would like feedback on the ‘Screening tests for you and your baby: easy guides’ from anyone involved in the antenatal and newborn screening pathway. Please complete the short survey which closes on 1 March 2018.
