CHF supporters may already be aware of our campaign for the introduction of Pulse Oximetry screening for all newborn babies in the UK.
The test which measures the oxygen levels in the blood is proven to be effective in detecting three quarters of congenital heart conditions. We’re leading this campaign and pushing for its inclusion in the national screening programme of all newborns.
And we’re also continuing to invite parents and carers to write to their MP to encourage as wide a discussion as possible about offering pulse oximetry testing for all newborn babies in the UK via NHS Trusts.
