For healthcare professionals

ARC is committed to supporting all healthcare professionals in the field of antenatal screening and recognises that working together enables us to provide the best care and support possible for every parent who faces a suspected or diagnosed fetal anomaly.

ARC's national helpline

We understand that being a healthcare professional in the field of antenatal screening can be extremely demanding with the ever-increasing pressure that comes with limited resources and the on-going challenge of delivering difficult news. If you need some additional support ARC’s helpline is available, providing a confidential and safe space to talk through difficult issues.

Want to talk? We’re here as often as you need us. Our helpline is answered by trained staff Monday to Friday, 10.00am-5.30pm; call 0845 077 2290 or 0207 713 7486 from a mobile.
