Contact Us To Arrange an NIPT Test

There are two options for arranging an NIPT test:

1) Book and pay online via the secure NIPT portal https://nipt.dreeam.ac.uk. Following an online booking the NIPT laboratory will contact you the next working day to arrange the test. You will then be given the option of:

  • Receiving an NIPT kit through the post and having your blood samples collected by your midwife/GP/Hospital Phlebotomy team. The blood samples and a completed request form will be returned to Clinical Pathology at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust for testing. (Please note that addressed packaging will be provided with the NIPT kit but postage will need to be paid additionally. It is recommended to use the Tracked Royal Mail postage service).
