Booking your scan

You will need to have a signed request form from either your GP or consultant which they can send in advance (our preferred option), or you can bring the request form with you on the day.

Your consultant or GP will explain why you need the scan and what they are looking for. Once they send the imaging request form to our imaging department a member of our team will be in contact to arrange a convenient time for you to come in for your scan.

Fast and efficient results

We don’t like to keep our patients waiting. Our turnaround times for reporting are excellent, with more than 80% of reports delivered within 24 hours of the examination. Your results will be sent to your specialist and discussed in your follow-up consultation.
