During your scan

Before entering the Yorkshire Baby Scan sonography room you will be required to sanitise your hands. Hand sanitiser will be provided for you.

You and your guest will be required to wear a mask throughout your appointment. Your mask will need to cover both your nose and mouth area and we ask that you avoid touching your mask to avoid spreading infection. Your sonographer and the maternity support worker will also wear a mask and PPE equipment to help keep you safe. Please make us aware if you have forgotten your mask and we will provide a disposable one for you to use for the duration of your appointment.

At the end of your appointment, our team will sanitise the bed and all equipment used to ensure the safety of the room for the next patient.
