8. Fetal Anomaly Screening and Independent Practice

Independent practitioners in England must meet the comprehensive requirements of the Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme (FASP) 16 when undertaking screening examinations that form part of the FASP remit. These are first trimester Down’s syndrome screening and the second trimester 18 weeks to 20 weeks 6 days fetal anomaly scan. There are equivalent organisations to FASP in Wales and Scotland. Web links to the various programmes are as follows:
