Coronavirus

NHS Ultrasound Support

Background

During the coronavirus pandemic we want to help alleviate non-emergency pressure on the NHS. We have 37 diagnostic ultrasound clinics situated across the UK providing private antenatal scans. Each of these clinics has arranged significant additional capacity to support NHS trusts. All clinics are CQC registered with all inspections receiving Good or Outstanding ratings.

We are speaking with a number of (not all) trusts across the UK to adapt our referral processes and to help to alleviate the demand on their maternity departments in this difficult time.
