Haywards Heath Group B Strep charity urges NHS action
A Sussex-based charity is calling on the government to test all pregnant women for a life-threatening infection that affects newborn babies.
Group B streptococcus is a bacterium that is carried by one in four pregnant women and affects one in 2,000 babies born every year in the UK.
Charity Group B Strep Support, which is based in Haywards Heath, has campaigned to make testing routine.
