This algorithm describes how to manage the screening of children with uncertain or incomplete screening status and covers the 3 newborn screening programmes:
newborn blood spot screening
newborn hearing screening
newborn and infant physical examination
It explains to healthcare professionals which screening tests can be offered at different ages (up to 3 months, between 3 months and a year, over 1 year of age) if the child missed them at birth. An equivalent immunisation algorithm is available.
