Post Dates and Liquor Pregnancy Scans
Due to recent developments of COVID 19 and following HSE guidelines,
patients are requested to attend ultrasound scans unaccompanied. This
includes partners, family members and children.
We would like to inform all patients that we remain open for ultrasound
scans as part of routine pregnancy care. We are closely following HSE
and NMH guidelines which are being constantly updated and developed.
These developments can be found via the NMH website. We remind our
patients that all our machines and ultrasound probes are always cleaned
thoroughly and disinfected with medical grade cleaning solution.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to call in advance.
If you have flu-like symptoms or feel unwell, or if you might have been
exposed to the coronavirus, please contact us to re-arrange your
appointment. Call 663 5060.
