Survey into long-term impacts of late-onset group B Strep infection in babies

Group B Strep Support is the only UK charity dedicated to eradicating group B Strep (GBS) infections, including meningitis, in babies. We provide up-to-date, evidence-based information on GBS to families and health professionals, and support affected families.

We are seeking better to understand the long-term consequences of late-onset group B Strep infection (occurring at age 7+ days), both for the infected baby and the family, and are inviting parents of babies who developed late-onset GBS infection to take part in a survey. We will use the findings to inform our work to influence UK policy and practice, to prevent early-onset GBS infection.

If you have had a baby who developed late-onset group B Strep infection, we invite you to take part in the survey. Your responses are voluntary and will be confidential. As with any online-related activity, the risk of a breach is always possible. All data collected will be stored in a password-protected electronic format. Data will not be shared with any third-parties. The information provided in the survey will not be used in a manner which would allow identification of individual responses. Participants will be offered the opportunity to be sent a copy of the summary report.

The closing date for taking part in the survey is 20 September 2018.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by email at [email protected] or on 01444 416176.
