Business description

The company is the UK market leader in the provision of obstetric diagnostic ultrasound scans from six weeks’ gestation to full term.

There are currently several significant opportunities and the company is well placed to explore such opportunities under the impetus of a new owner.

Throughout the pandemic, all Clinics have been fully operational for service and all fees have been paid. 

The business is offered for sale as part of the shareholder’s plans for  retirement, however, one Director has expressed appetite to remain within the company for the foreseeable.
