Retrieval of stored samples for cytomegalovirus (CMV) testing

Occasionally a clinician investigating a child's hearing problems requests that his/her stored newborn screening sample is retrieved from storage and sent to the virology department for CMV testing.

In order for us to release the sample, we require a consent form signed by the child's parent, as well as the child's details including those at the time of sample collection if they have changed e.g. address, name.

The requesting clinician should include details of where the report should be sent.
