Important Announcement – COVID-19 – 2021 Lockdown
As a healthcare provider, we would like to advise you that we continue to remain open with all scan packages available, however, the primary purpose of your pregnancy scan must be to check the health and well- being of your baby. Please note, we will no longer be offering rescans for image purposes only during the lockdown period.
All of our robust COVID 19 measures are in place to ensure the safety of both you and ourselves. At present, only 1 person from the same household/support bubble can attend with you for your scan providing you are both symptom-free and face coverings are worn at all times. Unfortunately, no children are allowed at present.
All our health scans are completed by trained and registered health care professionals trained in obstetric ultrasound scans. All scans are provided with a well- being report at the end of each scan and any concerns raised, the necessary referral will be made to your NHS trust.
Please ensure you are fit and well to attend your appointment.
We would kindly ask that you arrive for your appointment 5 minutes before your scheduled time and not any earlier. Only 2 people will be allowed in our reception area at any one time.
The front door will now be locked to please wait outside until your invited in by a member of staff.
Our hours of service may differ slightly during this lockdown period. Our online booking system will be amended accordingly to accommodate these change of hours.
We feel it is important that private ultrasound services remain open to offer peace of mind and relieve anxiety during these most difficult times.
Thanks for your understanding Baby Skan Team.
We can and will get through this lockdown together
Q: Are you still allowing +1 Guest?
A: Yes. We ask that you attend alone if at all possible, however, you are welcome to bring one guest with you for support if needed.
The safety of staff and clients remains our highest priority. We monitor client feedback through our Facebook page and our online booking system.
We have received comments from those attending our scans with their partners shows that our service offers clear benefits to mental health and bonding between dads and their unborn children. Mothers and partners have been unable to share these events through much of this year leading to stress.
We are continuing to offer these services as a company, so that we may lighten the load for already anxious expectant parents.
Q: Are all scans still available?
A: The simple answer is yes. They are all still available.
Q: Is my appointment going to be cancelled?
A: No! All appointments will go ahead as planned unless we contact you to confirm otherwise. There is no need to call us to confirm – we will call you if there’s any changes.
Q: Is your clinic safe?
A: We are undertaking every possible step to maintain a hygienic and low COVID-19 risk environment in our clinic. As part of that we ask that you and your guest please follow all social distancing advice before, during and after your appointment with us, wear a mask or face-covering throughout your appointment, wash your hands regularly and don’t attend if you or anyone close to you has reported any COVID-19 symptoms.

Infection control and PPE
We are working within Public Health England (PHE) guidelines by ensuring all of our scan rooms are deep cleaned between appointments. All of our staff have been provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and we are offering hand sanitiser and gloves to all of our patients upon arrival.
We have limited the number of clinic staff in the clinic at any one time to reduce the risk of transmission and to increase the distance between people in our clinics.

In line with Government guidelines, from the 15th of June, it is compulsory to wear face coverings on public transport. When possible, we are kindly asking those who attend to come to their appointment with a face covering. This can be either a scarf or cloth face covering. This should cover your mouth and nose, allowing you to breathe comfortably. Do not touch your face covering, and ensure loose ends are tucked.
