Prof Adrian Davis interviewed on BBC Breakfast

16 May 2012

As  Director of the NHS Newborn Hearing Screening Programme, Professor Adrian Davis was interviewed on BBC breakfast this morning to mark the 5 millionth baby screening which took place today in Manchester.

Nearly 9,000 children with hearing impairment have better chances of success at school and their parents are better prepared to support them thanks to the introduction of an NHS programme to detect hearing problems in the first days of a baby’s life. Today (Wednesday 16 May, 2012) marks the five millionth baby in England to be screened by the Newborn Hearing Screening Programme (NHSP) since the programme began in 2001.

A link to Prof Davis's interview via the BBC Iplayer will be available here soon.
