Its called ggt scan gastational glucose test. ... Pregnancy diabetes... Its not necessarily for everyone... I live in uk n i got this test in 2 weeks... Its for people with high risk pregnancy... I hve pcos thts y thy want to check... My didter in law had one coz had 3 kids before... But my other Sil had none.... Its mostly be at front of ur notes given after 20wks scan.... Ur midwife is suppose to book it for u... If their is no tag at the front they will not check for that...

A glucose test is when they test for gestational diabetes, you drink this orange sweet drink and then an hour later they take your blood. Not sure if it's in the UK or not, but I don't see why it wouldnt be.
