Urgency

Patients receive an x-ray or scan appointment within 24 hours – at a time convenient to them which includes evenings and weekends.

As the referring clinician, you will receive the imaging report within 48 hours of the examination being performed.

As a GP or clinician referrer, you are welcome to contact us at any time to discuss the most appropriate imaging requirements for your patient – and to discuss the details of any findings.

All general radiological diagnostic work and many sub-specialities are covered such as:

  • Musculoskeletal
  • Gastrointestinal

  • Thoracic
  • Cardiac
  • Vascular
  • Urological
  • Gynaecological
  • Neurological
  • Ear, nose and throat

Working together

As you know, an accurate diagnosis depends as much on the reporting as the quality of the image.

It helps clinicians to have a direct line of communication with the radiologist and for this reason we work closely with our clinical colleagues to understand the patient’s needs.

In our experience, this achieves a higher quality medical imaging reporting service and better patient outcomes overall.

Quality of imaging reporting

Our interpretation of an image includes only those details which are relevant and specific to the illness, injury or condition to be treated. It also takes account of the patient’s clinical history and any findings from other medical examinations.

This saves a significant amount of time.

It means you can take immediate action to begin treatment based on the accurate diagnosis in the report.

  • X-rays – of all body areas
