As of March 2006, all babies in England are now being screened for hearing problems as the NHS Newborn Hearing Screening Programme in England completes its roll out.
Newborn hearing screening is the name given to a type of screening test that tests the hearing of newborn babies within the first weeks of life.
The National Deaf Children’s Society provides information for parents about screening and childhood deafness on behalf of the NHS in England, Wales and Scotland.
