This second of two articles on sickle cell disease (SCD) aims to provide advice on nursing care for patients. All health professionals should be aware of the various manifestations of the disease, the life-threatening complications and their optimal management. Prophylactic strategy is of paramount importance as it may avert many possible adverse outcomes. Recurrent episodes of acute, severe pain require frequent hospital admissions. The care of individuals with SCD must extend into the community and take account of domestic, employment and educational issues. Affected pregnant women should be looked after by units experienced in the care of women with this condition. The diagnosis of haemoglobin type is simple and inexpensive and a comprehensive national screening programme to detect SCD in pregnant women and newborn babies was started in April 2002 as part of the Government’s broader aims to tackle inequalities in health and community.
