Down’s syndrome is a genetic disorder and the most frequent cause of learning disabilities.In its most common form, each of the body’s cells has an extra chromosome (chromosome 21).

For us it's more than just treating patients, it's about looking after people.

A fixed price for this treatment may be available on enquiry and following an initial consultation.

A computer programme uses the nuchal scan measurement, the size of the baby, the mother’s age and the blood results to work out a risk of Down’s syndrome for the baby.

This combined test allows the screening process to be more accurate and is recommended by the National Screening Committee and the Fetal Medicine Foundation.

It can also exclude major abnormalities at that stage of the pregnancy.

A combined test considers both the nuchal scan - which measures the amount of fluid lying under the skin at the back of a baby’s neck because babies with Down’s syndrome, heart and other chromosomal abnormalities have an increased amount of fluid here - and a blood test from the mother to work out a risk figure.

If the dates are incorrect, the screening test will be deferred to the appropriate time but there will be a charge for the dating scan.

You will be able to leave hospital after your test.

Before your nuchal scan, you may need to drink a pint of water so that you attend with a full bladder.
