UK National Screening Committee’s remit expanded to include targeted and stratified screening

The new chair of the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC), Professor Sir Mike Richards, announced today the expansion of the NSC’s remit to include those in high-risk groups (known as ‘targeted’ screening) and more tailored screening to individual risk (known as ‘stratified’ screening). This is a great step forward within SMA NBS screening in the UK and will hopefully lead the way to population screening.
