The Oaks Clinic provides quality woman centred healthcare operating from our medical facility in Loughton, Essex housed in a newly refurbished Edwardian building, providing a modern and relaxing environment.

We use state-of-the-art scanning equipment, providing the latest in ultrasound technology including 3D and 4D ultrasound scans, and paperless communication technology to ensure data and reports are safely stored and readily available to send to other healthcare professionals involved in delivering care.

Pregnancy and childbirth can be a worrying experience for expectant mothers. Our aim is to give support and confidence from conception to delivery with high standards of care and medical expertise.

The Oaks Clinic also offers a comprehensive gynaecological service, which includes ultrasound scans, consultations and well woman clinics.
