PLEASE NOTE

Family children aged 5 or more may enjoy sharing the experience of viewing the new developing baby.

Recent experiences have emphasised that children younger than 5 years have shown no interest, and as a result, have invariably become disruptive and noisy. This makes concentration / scanning impossible at times.

Please note that at the present time, we do not have suitable space to accommodate pushchairs or similar equipment.

Consequently, for Health and Safety reasons, and avoidance of wasted scanning times, we must request that children under 5 years of age should not be present at scanning appointments.

Thank you.
