State of the art heart scanning equipment will shortly be utilised by a specialist health company, based at Plymouth Science Park, to help improve cardiac services across the South West.
Ultracardiac will be able to provide detailed heart scans for patients when it opens its new premises at PSP over the next few months.
With more than three years of detailed planning and a contingent of three highly qualified and experienced operators, the team is developing strong links with local hospitals and care providers to provide a professional and cost-effective service – which will help to relieve pressure on hospital resources by assisting with their outpatient appointments.
Plymouth Science Park is an ideal location for Ultracardiac. Its close proximity to Derriford Hospital ensures convenience for patients. PSP also hosts a large number of companies specialising solely in the areas of Science and Technology.
“We look forward to working with other businesses located at Plymouth Science Park,” says Ultracardiac’s Sean Gundry.
“Being surrounded by businesses which can complement our work through their own expertise is beneficial for us and our clients. There are also a host of other medical companies at PSP and the facilities are first class.”
“The excellent on-site IT support and broadband speeds, networking opportunities, ample parking, meeting areas and the PSP bistro are ideal for a business like ours.”
The team will use the latest cardiac ultra sound equipment to provide a detailed scan of a patient’s heart before efficiently producing a report.
The painless, non-invasive procedure is carried out in a number of private areas within the on-site complex.
The process of ultra sound for cardiac scanning allows clinicians to access the structure and function of the heart – in particular, looking at its overall pumping capability and evaluating the heart’s valves.
Ultracardiac can offer its services to private clients who are looking for an efficient and professional echocardiogram with prices starting from as little as £109.
There is currently a worldwide shortage of echocardiographers and the experts at Ultracardiac are all fully qualified and accredited with the British Society of Echocardiography.
The team at Ultracardiac are all excited about the future, and the opportunities into which they can grow the business.
