I just got referred to Lister hospital and my first booking appointment will be at QEII.
Started reading some old posts and it seems like they didn't always offer nuchal scan. Can anyone confirm that it is still the case? It's an important test I can't believe that is not always offered.

Under FASP guidelines it should be offered to every woman within England so long as baby Is within the right gestational age to have it done. i am a sonographer and have three friends who work across both sites and they all perform these scans so they should offer it it to you. sometimes it happens that the midwife accidentally ticks declines nuchal scan on the booking form but they should double check with you at scan.
