Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 26 June 2019

Bump2Baby is operated by Bump2Baby Scans Limited. The service provides a baby scanning service which includes early pregnancy scans and gender scans. We inspected diagnostic imaging.

We inspected this service using our comprehensive inspection methodology. We carried out the announced part of the inspection on 16 April 2019.

To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we ask the same five questions of all services: are they safe, effective, caring, responsive to people's needs, and well-led? Where we have a legal duty to do so we rate services’ performance against each key question as outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.

Throughout the inspection, we took account of what people told us and how the provider understood and complied with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
