Results of the ENBS are usually available from 1 to 2 months after the National Screening Center received the specimen.
Negative or normal results can be claimed in the hospital or lying-in clinic where the test was conducted. If the results are positive – meaning the doctor found something, the healthcare facility will contact you immediately so your baby can undergo further assessment.
For this reason, the contact details you provide must be correct and updated.
The doctor might ask for a repeat test
Another important thing that you should know about ENBS is that the doctor might ask for a repeat test, especially for premature babies.
Other scenarios that may need a repeat test include insufficient blood samples or tests that give unclear results.
