The Department of Health has responded to the campaign of a mother calling for more awareness of the condition Group Strep B. Jane Plumb's baby son died after he contracted the illness. The mother-of-two from Sussex has been asking for a test for the condition to be more widely available.
A woman who lost her son to the condition 'Strep B' has been named 'Tesco Mum of the Year' for her campaign against the illness.
Strep B contributed to the death of Jane Plumb's baby son Theo 18 years ago. Since then, the mother-of-two from Sussex, has campaigned for better information about Strep B.
