Description/Abstract

This paper describes the successful implementation of
universal antenatal screening for HIV and hepatitis B in
Southampton and South West Hampshire Health Authority.
This was achieved through formation of a multi-disciplinary
planning group of clinicians and managers from local trusts.
The approach taken in implementing screening is described,
key elements of this being the appointment of screening coordinators and consultation with local midwives to ensure
their training needs were addressed. Lessons for future work
are discussed.
