Our Clinics
Our Location

With clinics in Cardiff, First Encounters has become the leading ultrasound scan provider in Wales. We provide the most comprehensive packages and the highest quality of service at very competitive prices.


Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic we implemented special measures to prevent the spread of infection using every means possible to limit unnecessary physical contact. As we move to alert level zero of the pandemic businesses have become duty bound to risk assess their operational procedures to ensure a continued high degree of safety for both their staff and clientele. As a business using “close contact workers” in the “medical” sector our procedures must remain stricter than most. We will continue to permit one adult guest to accompany you in to the examination room, however from Monday 16th August 21, a maximum of four additional guests (including supervised children) are now able to share your scan experience from the comfort of our new private viewing room where they can watch your scan with audio without compromising the safety of the sonographer and their assistant. Face masks remain compulsory for all visitors attending the clinic. Please be aware that this guest policy is continually under review during the pandemic and is subject to change at short notice to comply with any Government restrictions imposed.

All staff will continue to wear an approved standard of PPE for your protection, and your scan report and imagery will continue to be provided in a digital format in support of infection control measures.
