Just wondering if anyone has had the new NIPT/SAFE test (similar to Harmony) on the NHS?

St George's in London said they were rolling it out but the new lab only opened this month
I have had my nuchal scan date through but it doesn't mention NIPT anywhere

I don't think you can get it yet on the nhs. You can get it privately though.

We've been doing it since May (NHS hospital). Currently we NIPT all samples where the combined screening risk comes back at higher than 1:800. Women can pay if they want NIPT for risks lower than this.
