Diagnostics

Our diagnostics services use the latest imaging technology and techniques to offer patients a range of high quality, community-based diagnostic investigations.

We know how important it is for patients to receive a fast and accurate diagnosis, and our services reduce waiting times while increasing choice and convenience. Our highly trained clinical teams are professional, friendly and compassionate, and dedicated to providing the highest standard of service.

Each year we deliver more than 75,000 community-based scans at over 60 locations across the country on behalf of the NHS. Scans range from MRI to ultrasound, X-ray and echocardiography to CT and DXA (bone density testing).

A similar range of scans are offered by our 11 treatment centres and our clinical assessment and treatment services located around the country.

We also run high quality community-based mobile ultrasound and DXA services at dozens of sites across the UK on behalf of the NHS and independent healthcare providers. The services move between local clinics on a rota system, providing a convenient and community-based option for patients who have been referred by their GPs.

In addition, we run several centres where the main focus is on diagnostics. For patients referred by their GPs, these centres offer fast access to a range of scanning technology, including X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound and DXA.

We have services in the following locations:

Wherever we’re working, and whatever diagnostic test we’re performing, our teams pride themselves on delivering the highest possible standard of service for patients at the right time and in the right place.
