Baby-OSCAR started its follow-up phase in October 2017

Baby-OSCAR study has started its follow-up phase while recruitment continues in hospitals across the UK.

We will be sending questionnaires directly to parents just before their child's second birthday.  It is imperative that we receive these questionnaire back, as it measures the primary outcome of the trial. So if your baby was a participant on the trial, please help us out by taking part in this important stage of the study.

If you have any questions regarding this follow-up, have any queries regarding the questionnaire or haven't received your questionnaire when you think you should have, please contact the Baby-OSCAR team via email ( or telephone 01865 17965.

There is an option of completing the questionnaire online. Thank you for your help and support of this important study.
