We are Leigh, Sharon and Nicky. We jointly own and run Take a Peek. We are an independent scanning studio and take great pride in operating a personal relaxing family orientated service for you and your family.
To ensure that the high quality of the service is maintained we do not employ locum sonographers. We guarantee you will be scanned by one of the UK qualified Sonographer owners, either Nicky, Sharon or Leigh. As you are scanned by one of the owners we can ensure the scan is of the highest quality.
Take A Peek is registered, and therefore licensed to provide services, by the Care Quality Commission. Click on the link for our latest report from the CQC - report. For more information, visit www.cqc.org.uk.
Check your scan is performed by a qualified sonographer. Some clinics employ sonographers who may not have the same high level of training and skills as others.
