March '21 - Ultrasound Direct Acquires Miracle in Progress

March Ultrasound Direct is pleased to announce it has acquired Miracle in Progress, an ultrasound scanning company based in Northern Leicestershire. This move gives Ultrasound Direct a clinic providing ultrasound scans to Leicester for the first time since 2017.

Miracle in Progress was setup in 2010, with a clinic in Shepshed town centre. This excellent location will evolve to become the Ultrasound Direct Leicester clinic, and is reachable from across the Midlands with its prime position just a few minutes off the M1 motorway.

The new Leicester Ultrasound Direct clinic will offer a comprehensive range of ultrasound scans and state-of-the-art services like Ultrasound Direct toMOBILE, all supported by industry-leading standards of care and expertise. The owner of Miracle in Progress, Joanna Proud will, alongside other members of the Miracle in Progress team, continue to work with the Ultrasound Direct team going forwards to ensure a smooth transition.

Ultrasound Direct is an award winning healthcare provider of private ultrasound scans with 20 years of experience in providing reassurance to patients with more than 80 clinics across the UK.

When asked for comment, Ultrasound Direct Director, Jan Steward said, "Speaking on behalf of The Fertility Partnership I am delighted to welcome the team of Miracle in Progress into the Ultrasound Direct family.

Midwife Sonographer, Jo Proud is joining Ultrasound Direct so we can ensure that all previous and new clients will get the same quality of care, safely delivered by professional, friendly staff.

Miracle in Progress was already offering a broad range of Ultrasound and blood services for pregnancy and fertility clients. This will now be expanded to include Men's and Women's general wellbeing scans.

This new Leicester Ultrasound Direct clinic complements our other Ultrasound Direct Midlands clinics in Telford, Nottingham and Derby, so we are now easily accessible across the whole of the North Midlands from East to West.

On behalf of Ultrasound Direct – part of The Fertility Partnership, we look forward to welcoming you to Shepshed."
