It’s important that patients attend planned diagnostic imaging appointments during the current situation. Diagnostic imaging is being booked where the results will be important for treatment. If patients don’t attend booked appointments there could be a significant wait for another one.
The radiology department is doing everything possible to minimise the COVID-19 risk during visits by using alternative locations including RSH, Spire Southampton and Nuffield Hospitals where clinically appropriate and possible, staggering appointments and all staff are taking the appropriate measures, including wearing PPE.
UHS is asking that patients attend their appointment alone. If patients require assistance; an adult will be able to attend as well, but may be asked to wait outside of the department.
If patients are shielding or isolating due to exposure to COVID-19, please call the UHS radiology department to cancel /rebook your event on 023 81 20 4015
