The UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) has started a national consultation on screening for Preterm birth and asks for comments and feedback on the consultation papers.

The purpose of the review was to evaluate whether the evidence available supports the introduction of a universal screening programme to screen all pregnant women (asymptomatic and without existing risk factors) for risk of preterm birth and related neonatal and maternal outcomes.

Their findings indicate that they should continue with their current policy not to perform universal screening of otherwise low-risk asymptomatic pregnant women for risk of preterm birth and associated neonatal and maternal outcomes.

Deadline: Friday 23 October 2020
