*The year screening commenced is approximate. In some cases this was part way through a year and initially may have included only certain areas. It is important not to assume that individual babies have been screened for a particular condition. Health professionals should contact their local Child Health Records Department (CHRD), in the first instance, for any historical enquiries.
