How the process works
This interactive diagram guides you through the antenatal screening for Down syndrome and other conditions screening process.
- That screening is optional
- There are two options for screening (first and second trimester)
- Screening results are sent to your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) or GP.
- An individual whose result shows an ‘increased risk’ will be offered referral to an Obstetrician to discuss further diagnostic testing.
