New GBS patient information leaflet a step closer

21st August 2017

We are delighted to report that the patient information leaflet on Group B Strep, which has been prepared jointly by the Group B Strep Support Group and the Royal College of Obstetricians, has moved a step closer to becoming a reality.

The leaflet was been submitted for peer review late last week and once finalised will result in an change to the RCOG guidelines to ensure that it is provided to every pregnant woman in the NHS, and ensure that all mothers are fully informed of the risks and treatment options.

Further information on the leaflet and GBS in general can be found via the GBS Support Group website: http://gbss.org.uk/latest-news/gbspatientinformation/

Fletchers Solicitors have partnered with the Group B Strep Support group for 2017/18 and know that only hard work and persistence has pushed this leaflet through, we congratulate the whole team for their efforts.
