PAMS (Pam’s Pregnancy Ultrasound Centre) is a private and independently run Ultrasound Centre founded in 2010 and run by advanced ultrasound practitioner Punam Kapur.
Mrs Punam Kapur has over 18 years experience in obstetric ultrasound both within the NHS and privately. As well as being an experienced Sonographer, Pam is also a mother, which brings a wealth of knowledge as well as a understanding of the anxieties that face families in the early stages of pregnancy. We speak to Pam about the centre.
Why book a scan additionally to the NHS ones?
There are many reasons you may wish to book an additional scan to the NHS ones. Early Pregnancy Scans are available from as early as 6 weeks, booking an early pregnancy scan can help with any anxiety around the pregnancy, especially if you have concerns or have previously experience a miscarriage. Our pregnancy ultrasound scans are available seven days a week and appointments are available to suit you. We advise you not to replace your NHS Scans with our private scans, but to use them as an early opportunity to see how everything is coming along.
Where are you based?
We are conveniently located in the heart of Norwich. The rooms are ideally located approximately one and a half miles from Norwich city centre in the very popular residential area of Newmarket Road. Phone lines open 8.00am to 8.00pm 7 days a week. We offer same day and emergency after hours and weekend ultrasound scan appointments in a clean and caring environment, to suit your needs.
What makes you different?
