Hi Raechel,

Thanks for your reply.

May I clarify one part of your response please? In the first question "Please supply a copy of your guideline(s) relating to group B Strep during pregnancy, labour, and in newborn babies" - I can see there is a link to the RCOG's Green-top guideline on group B Strep.

Would I be right to understand that the Trust does not have its own local guidelines on group B Strep, and simply refers to the national clinical guideline from the RCOG?

Yours sincerely,

Oliver Plumb

Hello Oliver,

Yes that is the correct, the Trust does not have its own local guidelines
on group B Strep, and simply refers to the national clinical guideline
from the RCOG.

Kind regards,

Raechel
