Q: How early do I need to arrive?
A: Please arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time so you can complete the necessary paperwork.
Q: How long will my appointment take?
A: Depending on the type of scan you book, you may be with us for 30 minutes to an hour. Please take a look at our Scan Options section.
Q: How many people can I bring with me?
A: We have 5 seats for guests in the Scan Room, however you can bring as many guests as you'd like to join you during your scan.
Q: Can I bring children to my scan?
A: Yes! It's great to involve them.
Q: Do I still need to attend my NHS scan appointments?
A: Yes! It is important to attend any appointments scheduled by your GP, Midwife or Consultant. The scans you have in the NHS are for a specific purpose and it's essential that you attend these as they are integral to the care of you and your baby.
Q: How will my scan be performed?
A: Our scans are all performed trans-abdominally (on your abdomen).

A: Not too full! Drinking 500 to 750 mls (3 to 4 cups) of water half an hour prior to your scan appointment should be enough.
Q: Can I have a scan if I know I'm expecting twins?
A: Of course! Please let us know when booking your scan if you know you are expecting twins (or more!) so that we can allocate more time.
Q: Can I park?
A: There is 'Pay and Display' parking very close by, as detailed in our Find section
