Newborn Screening Ontario
Health Care Providers


During the CCHD rollout in 2017, Newborn Screening Ontario (NSO) sent periodic newsletters with important information to assist with the implementation of screening for Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) in Ontario. NSO no longer sends out CCHD newletters. Any communications regarding CCHD screening are communicated via the NSO submitter bulletins. Please contact us if you would like to be added to the submitter bulletin distribution list.
