NEW NOTICE

Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy Areas

Cost of Scans from these areas will be reduced by discounts which will be offered as follows: -

Aberdeen Area £20

Edinburgh Area £20

Kirkcaldy Area £10

These discounts are offered to assist the cost of fuel required to visit Perth when booking appointments for Option 3 or higher.

NOTICE

From January 1st 2017 the OPTIONS and PRICES have been altered due to opinions and advice, until Summer 2017.

We have also been advised and agreed to restrict our SCANS to Mornings only.

Accordingly, we are now offering Half-Hourly appointments which commence at 9 a.m., and the final appointments will be at 1 pm.

This is due to the fact that we have been asked to take part in Scan Training - which is not a short process, in order to train sufficiently qualified and reliable scanning operators, in our opinion.
