Newborn blood spot screening (English and translations)

Newborn blood spot screening leaflet cover showing mother smiling at newborn baby

In the first week after birth, all babies in Northern Ireland are now offered screening for six inherited metabolic disorders, congenital hypothyroidism, cystic fibrosis and sickle cell disorders. Most babies who are tested will not have any of these conditions, but for those who do, early diagnosis and treatment is very important.
