star this property answer text <p>The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has produced a Green-top guideline: Prevention of Early-Onset Neonatal Group B Streptococcal Disease. The Green-top guideline provides guidance for obstetricians, midwives and neonatologists on the prevention of early-onset neonatal group B streptococcal (GBS) disease. The first edition was published in 2003 and the second updated edition was published in 2012. An audit in partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and supported by the Royal College of Midwives was recently carried out by the RCOG. It examined current practice in preventing early- onset neonatal GBS disease by investigating the implementation of the RCOG Green-top guideline (2012 edition) and identified key areas for improvement. The first report was published on 5 March 2015 and found that the majority of obstetric units in the United Kingdom have written protocols to prevent early onset GBS disease in newborn babies. However, there is still variation in practice across units. The second report is due to be published later this year. Further information is available at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/news/rcog-release-new-audit-into-gbs-finds-variation-in-practice-across-obstetric-units/" target="_blank">https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/news/rcog-release-new-audit-into-gbs-finds-variation-in-practice-across-obstetric-units/</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has published a clinical guideline which addresses early-onset GBS and other neonatal infections, ‘Antibiotics for early-onset neonatal infection: Antibiotics for the prevention and treatment of early-onset neonatal infection’ (August 2012).The clinical guideline is available at:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg149" target="_blank">http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg149</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Information on GBS in pregnancy is publically available on the NHS Choices website at:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/pregnancy-infections.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/pregnancy-infections.aspx</a>.

The paper concluded that within current accepted clinical guidelines, there are no indications for testing women using enriched culture medium (ECM) methods. Therefore the ECM test has not been introduced into PHE laboratories.
