Beehive Solutions employes highly qualified staff with the experience and knowledge to perform and report all types of Ultrasound examination, including highly specialised studies.

For the SW Essex PCT Community Ultrasound project, however, the PCT has restricted the types of scans to be performed, with non-included examination types being referred to the local Acute Trust (Hospital).

The categories of Ultrasound examination covered by the SW Essex Ultrasound agreement are:

  • Upper Abdominal     -  Liver, Kidneys, Spleen, Pancreas, Aorta, Gall Bladder,
  • Gynaecological        -  Female pelvis   - Uterus, Ovaries, Adnexa, Bladder

  • Small Parts               -  Testes, Thyroids
  • Musculo-Skeletal     - Joints, Muscles, Tendons, 'Lumps & Bumps'

The noteable exceptions to this list are: Obstetrics, Vascular and Pardiatric cases, all of which are referred to the Acute Trust for examination. 

Note: Excluded examinations are still available through Beehive Solutions as Private (fee-paying) examnations, but will not be funded by the primary-care fund-holders.
