All of our scans are completed primarily for the health and well-being of our patients. As such all scans are completed for a medical need.
These are unprecedented times, all extras included in a scan (such as the 4D imaging element) can now not be included in your scan to protect you and our staff.
To continue to provide a medical service the core medical elements of all of our scan appointments will continue. You will be provided with a full medical report as normal. Any scans that have been booked that include 4D imaging will now be changed to our well-being scan only (automatically) and the price will be changed accordingly.
We are aware the NHS are under unprecedented pressure and want to ensure all pregnant women have access to diagnostic ultrasound services to continue to monitor their pregnancy safely.
Window to the Womb and firstScan are working with a number of NHS trusts to support core obstetric ultrasound services, providing relief to hospitals wherever possible. If we can offer this service to you, you will be notified by your antenatal care provider. We cannot take direct bookings for NHS scans as this is on a hospital by hospital basis and would need to be booked directly by them.
You, alongside our amazing colleagues, are our primary concern and we will do whatever we can to help in these difficult times.
It is vitally important that you attend any appointment with only one guest. For everybody’s safety, we will be enforcing this in all clinics.
