Should screening for Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) in babies should be tried within the NHS?2017-08-042017-11-01NUK - EnglandPublic Health England

The UK’s independent expert screening committee is today (4 August 2017) launching a consultation to look at whether screening for Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) in babies should be tried within the NHS.

The consultation findings will provide valuable information about whether SCID should be added to the existing NHS newborn blood spot screening programme, which currently checks for 9 rare but serious health conditions by taking a blood sample from a baby’s heel.
