Private Clinics & Hospitals For NIPT (Harmony or Panorama or neoBona Test)

For the past decade, doctors have utilised the Nuchal Translucency Scan to assess pregnant women on their risk of having a baby with Down syndrome, or other possible abnormalities. This scan enables doctors to look at the skin fold of the baby’s neck along with baby’s nose bone near the 12 week mark. This combined with an additional blood test make for a 92% predictive value. While these results are strong, there is still a high margin for error, and women who present as high risk may elect to proceed to Chorion Villous Sampling (CVS) or Amniocentesis. Unfortunately, these tests are invasive and carry a risk of miscarriage of about 1:100.

Even the slightest chance of miscarriage is a scary thought for any new mum. The good news is, Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is now available. Doctors have discovered that a simple blood sample taken from the mother at around 10 weeks can be analysed for cell free foetal DNA. The results of this test have a predictive value of more than 99%, greatly reducing the need for more invasive and risky testing.

There are currently three main tests available in the UK – Harmony Test, Panorama Test, and neoBona Test. Please contact the clinics listed here to know more about the NIPT they offer during pregnancy.

Second visit with Dr Nevi - great doctor! I recently moved from West to east London but I’m still confident I will keep her as my doctor in the future. Emily at the front desk is really kind and helpful! Would give more than 5 stars if I could.

Nothing to say about the doctor that I saw today. She was excellent. But I'm angry about the bad staff at the reception (which ruined at the end my visit) Where i was literally accused of wanting fraud because I just asked to separates the invoice per 2 : 1 for consultation with the doctor and 1 for the infirmary. The receptionist was just aggressive, she just could refuse it more nicely... without mentioning the multiple mistakes made in my data. I really think that at this level there are improvements to do..

Very professional and polite service. The dermatologist I saw was excellent. They are very good with children too. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Convenient location near Earl's Court tube station.

I had a negative experience to start with where my appointment didn't include a scan and I was still charged £250 for an unsatisfactory consultation. The clinic then called me and made up for their mistake by arranging an appointment with a doctor who was amazing and provided me with a scan that exceeded my expectations. They then called me again to make sure I was happy with the procedure, which I thought was very professional.

I've had my pregnancy scans here, and I have to say I am very pleased and highly recommend them. Very thorough and professional for every scan.
