Today Nickie Aiken MP brought our Newborn Screening campaign to the attention of Boris Johnson at Prime Minister's Questions! Nickie began by congratulating Boris and his fiance Carrie Symonds on the news that they are expecting a baby, going on to state that we all want the best start in life for our children, including the knowledge that they are healthy. After being told by Nickie that our newborn screening programme was a 'disgrace', Boris confirmed that Nickie would be given a dedicated meeting with Health Minister Matt Hancock to discuss this important issue further. This is brilliant news and a flying start to our campaign.
