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.
