Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aim:  To investigate how clinically well, term newborns at risk of early-onset GBS disease (EOGBS) are currently managed in the United Kingdom (UK). Methods:  Review of guidelines of UK neonatal units. Results:  125 guidelines, covering 157 neonatal units were received (71% of UK units), three of which were excluded from the review. We found great variation in every aspect of the management of EOGBS disease risk including: definition of risk factors; management of at risk newborns; choice of antibiotics. Conclusion:  Our findings highlight the need for national consensus guidelines and clinical trials into the management of risk babies at risk of EOGBS disease.
