Innovis to support Signet scanning services

Ultrasound Scanning Services in Mid-Wales, South Wales and the South West

Signet have recently been informed that Philip Evans our ultrasound technician covering Mid and South Wales and the South West of England wishes to leave us at the end of May for personal reasons. We are grateful for the support that Philip has provided to the business over the last 18 months and wish him well.

From 1st June, Innovis have kindly agreed to provide ultrasound scanning services for Signet clients in those regions previously covered by Philip. Innovis already provide a Signet accredited scanning service as part of the Hill Ram Scheme which is running in Wales - with plans to scan over 50 large hill flocks over the coming months. By extending their team, they will partner with Signet for the rest of the season to provide scanning services to our clients.

Innovis have agreed to honour the current fee structure, which for Signet clients is £1.75 per head, with a minimum single visit fee of £175 (plus VAT). For non-Signet clients a different fee structure will apply.

All of our clients will be invoiced directly by Innovis.

Booking an appointment

To make an appointment, please contact Innovis headquarters and your details will be passed to the relevant technician.

If you have further questions relating to the scanning service and wish to speak to a Signet consultant, please contact Ed Brant (M) 07810 789501 for more information.
