Many women chose to pay for a private scan because they want a scan earlier than is provided routinely in the NHS, or they want the reassurance that a pregnancy is on-going. To see a baby’s heartbeat can often relieve anxiety and many women cry tears of relief at this point! ScanSanctuary offers some scans that are not available on the NHS, and offers a 45 minute appointment time in a relaxed environment.
Ultrasound scans use soundwaves, not radiation, to produce images. ScanSanctuary follows clinical guidelines as set by the British Medical Ultrasound society (BMUS) and observes safety indices during the scan to ensure that you and your baby are safe.
We are a non-diagnostic, and non-medical scan service. We do not check for abnormalities, however if anything unusual is noticed, we will explain our finding based on basic observation and we will refer you to your healthcare provider. We have direct links to Nobles Hospital, Isle of Man.
