The North West TB Summit commissioned a BCG work stream to support local organisations with their work to strengthen the delivery of safe and effective neonatal BCG programmes.  The project reviewed the delivery of the programme across 22 PCTs, looking at BCG uptake rates, the clinical pathways in place and any findings from incidents that had occurred.

Four high impact actions and eight supporting recommendations have been made and are published here alongside a toolkit for reviewing local programmes
