This data template is for submitting annual screening programme standards data for the NHS sickle cell and thalassaemia, infectious diseases in pregnancy and fetal anomaly screening programmes.
The antenatal screening programme standards include metrics that assess the screening pathway and help providers and commissioners identify where improvements are needed.
Requests for data are sent to screening co-ordinators via the regional screening quality assurance service in mid-April and instructions for data submission are included in the data request. Screening co-ordinators should download and complete this version of the data collection template. They should return data to the programme by the end of June at the latest.
