NICE has recently published an addendum to their guidance on Jaundice in newborn babies under 28 days. The addendum to this guidance has added new and updated recommendations on measuring and monitoring bilirubin levels and the type of phototherapy to use. (Section 1.4, recommendations 1.4.1, 1.4.2, 1.4.8 and 1.4.9)). As this guidance has previously been endorsed by the Department, comments are only being sought on the addendum.
Guidance for the consultation can be found on the NICE Website.
In order to meet the timescales, the closing date for responses is Wednesday 22 June 2016.
