Group B Strep Support
Group B Strep (Streptococcus) is a bacterium which colonises around 30% of the population – this means that people carry it but without actually being infected by it.
There is the risk that pregnant women can pass the infection on to the baby during childbirth, if the signs of Group B Strep are negligently missed.
Tozers’ partner Stuart Bramley is one of the few solicitors in the UK on the legal panel of the leading charity and pressure group, Group B Strep Support.
Group B Strep Support wants every pregnant woman to be given information on group B Strep as part of her antenatal care and the opportunity to be tested for the infection.
