NHS Wants To Record Alcohol Consumption Of All Pregnant Women In England & Wales.

: 09/16/2020 - 09:36

Plans by the British health service to record the alcohol consumption of every pregnant woman in England and Wales are being criticised.

Proposed guidelines - already in place in Scotland - suggest children's medical records show if their mother had even a single glass during the first week when they were expecting.

The aim is to prevent alcohol-based disorders, but the British Pregnancy Advisory Service says it would violate EU data protection rules.
