    A condition for which newborn babies are tested. People with congenital hypothyroidism don't produce thyroid hormones properly. This can affect the development of the baby's organs, in particular the brain. If identified early the baby can be treated and can lead a healthy life. CHT has been screened for throughout the UK since the 1980s.
