dc.description.abstract To audit the crod blood thryoid screening programme in the Peninsula Maternal and Neonatal Services (PMNS) in the 5 year period from 01/01/2000 to 31/12/2004, focusing on coverage, recall rate and success, number of cases detected, incidence of congenital hypothryoidism in this population; and cost efficiency of the programme. All babies born in the PMNS from 01/01/2000 to 31/12/2004 were included in the audit. The medical records of all babies recalled following an abnormal screen were examined. 140 507 babies were born in the PMNS during the audit period, while 130 389 primary Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) screens were done (92.8% coverage). 2 207 of the screened babies had abnormal results requiring review. en_ZA
