Welcome to Somerset Early Scans
We are an experienced team of Doctors, Nurse Practitioners & Advanced Practitioner Sonographers, all with qualifications in Ultrasound.
We are passionate about supporting women in early pregnancy and since opening in 2014 we have seen thousands of clients and had wonderful feedback about our care. Our Bridgwater clinic is easily accessible from the M5, serving Taunton, Yeovil and Weston-Super-Mare. Our Bath clinic is situated in Paulton to serve Bath, Bristol, Frome, Chippenham and Warminster.
We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the General Medical Council. As well as ultrasound scans we offer Harmony non invasive prenatal testing. This is a highly accurate test for Down’s syndrome. See Harmony page for further details
We are all clinicians which means we will talk you through your scan as it progresses and answer your questions, make a diagnosis and explain the findings. No worrying silences or waiting whilst we find someone more senior! We offer longer appointments than other clinics and a very high standard of care.
As of 23rd March 2020 in response to government guidance we have suspended 4D and gender scans. We will only be carrying out scans where there is a healthcare need. For more detailed information of what this means please click here.
To keep you safe, staff will not come to work with any new symptoms of a cough or fever in the last 7 days. Nor will they come in if a member of their household has had a new cough or fever in the last 14 days. All surfaces including door handles will be disinfected in between patients and hands washed thoroughly before and after each client. Please wash your hands for 20 seconds before and after your scan and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. We will close immediately for deep cleaning if a possible coronavirus patient enters the clinic room.
To keep others safe, you may not visit the clinic if you have a new cough or fever within the last 7 days, or if a member of your household has had these symptoms in the last 14 days. We are sorry to say that currently only the client themselves can attend the appointment. We are not permitting partners or children.
You will be contacted by telephone within 24 hours of your appointment to confirm your health status, and we will provide instructions with regards to waiting in your car until we call you to come in.
Last night the government announced further measures to control the spread of coronavirus. You can read about the guidance which is in effect from 23rd March 2020 here British citizens
