Neonatal Care Pathway
This DSD Neonatal Care Pathway is designed to ensure all babies born with a difference in sex development (DSD) in Scotland receive care that is safe, effective and centered around the needs of the baby and family. It is specific to the first few days of life, providing clinical staff who may not have encountered DSDs before, with the information they need to ensure that babies are managed and referred appropriately and their parents are supported throughout.
Each Health Board will have a detailed clinical referral pathway for management of newborns with suspected DSD which should be followed. This Pathway and supporting guidance have been developed by SDSD for use within NHS Scotland.
