Celebrating thirty years at UCL Institute of Child Health
At the end of December 2015 Pat Tookey officially retired from UCL and stepped down from her role as principal investigator for the National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC). Pat will continue as a co-investigator of the NSHPC and a contributor to the Infectious Diseases in Pregnancy Screening Programme.
New forms out now
We have redesigned the forms which respondents use to report cases to the study. New information will not be collected, but we hope that the new design is more concise and easier to follow. We welcome feedback on how you find the new forms.
Online reporting to start in April
A pilot for online obstetric reporting will begin in April. Instead of notifying the Study of the number of HIV positive pregnancies using the green card, selected respondents will be contacted to trial this new online system.
