COVID-19: Information for pregnancy and newborn screening participants

During Alert Level 1, screening services will be provided as normal, including:

  • Screening for Down syndrome and other conditions

  • Newborn metabolic screening (the heel prick test)
  • Newborn hearing screening

Please note, there may be some delay to outpatient hearing screening appointments whilst providers catch up on those appointments missed during the COVID response.

We thank you for your patience whilst we work through this delay, and we hope to have appointments back to normal within a short timeframe.
