The Early Pregnancy Assessment Clinic (EPAC) is a nurse-led outpatient clinic for women in early pregnancy between 5 and 19 weeks + 6 days. The clinic provides emergency assistance for women with suspected miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy who have a positive pregnancy test with bleeding and/or pain.

This is not a drop-in clinic, we operate an appointment system. Please arrange a referral from your midwife, GP or A&E.

Opening times

EPAC is open to referrals and queries Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4pm.

We offer 11 scan slots Monday to Friday. Patients are seen in the clinic between 9am and 1pm according to their booked arrival time.

The weekend service is shared with Southmead Hospital. This means that sometimes we are closed on Saturday and Sunday. The health professional referring you will be able to give you more advice.
