I am writing to support the initiative to introduce screening of babies for Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID)

This test can be done using the blood that is already taken from babies and it would therefore not cause them any extra suffering or discomfort. The test is very cheap and I understand that the cost of doing it will be far less than the cost of caring for SCID children who are not diagnosed and therefore become very unwell and need a lot of expensive hospital treatment.
