Safe and expert service delivery

The measure we have in place to ensure safe and expert service delivery for all of our clients. 

We are a clinically-led ultrasound clinic, managed by an experienced sonographer.

We only employ currently practicing sonographers who are all fully UK trained and qualified, with years of NHS working experience behind each of them.

All our sonographers are HCPC registered with up to date evidence of Continuous Professional Development.

We offer longer appointment times for each of our scans in order to allow our sonographers to have an adequate opportunity to check the baby and undertake the scan optimally.

Our service has been structured to include a clear referral pathway to the local trust hospitals in cases that any patients may require further assessments of the baby to be undertaken.

We have a robust record-keeping system to securely archive forms and images for future reference. This means that we can readily trace back any paperwork and scans that were undertaken for anyone in our care, as needed.

The safety of our patients is at the centre of all we do and our whole service has been designed to reflect that at every level.

Our clinic has invested in state of the art ultrasound imaging technology to achieve the best results, high image quality and provide accuracy in our images.

We also provide a range of exciting extras to the scans such as gender reveal lighting feature-where the room lights up pink or blue depending on the baby’s gender and HD Live 4D scans. Our clinic is very spacious to comfortably accommodate guests to truly enjoy your scan experience. The clinic has been finished to a high standard with beautiful décor to provide our expectant parents the most comfortable, calming and relaxed environment to meet their unborn baby and take away memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Longer appointment times to enjoy your time with your baby

We offer longer appointment times to allow you the opportunity to fully take in the experience of enjoying your baby and ask any questions that you may have regarding your scan. You can also expect to have privacy at the clinic as we only allow a maximum of 2 families in the building at any one time so you wont have to queue. The magical experience of bonding with your baby is something to be cherished, and here at Imaginatal we place that at the centre of all that we do.

Discuss your requirements

If you have any special requirements for your visit, kindly let our friendly team know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Our clinic has been designed to allow disabled/buggy access and has been fitted with baby changing facilities.

We look forward to meeting you and your bundle of joy soon!
