UK Based Consultant Radiologists
Hereford Radiology Group is a partnership of seven experienced consultant radiologists employed by the Hereford Hospitals NHS Trust in the historic Marches region of the UK, providing NHS and private diagnostic radiology services at our base hospital and to private patients at the Hereford Nuffield Hospital.
In the April 2009- April 2010 year we scanned 28,935 patients at our base hospital alone (MRI, CT, non-obstetric ultrasound and isotope scans).
Hereford Radiology Group see private patients from throughout the UK. We are conveniently located for Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Shropshire, West Midlands and Mid, West and South Wales.
We welcome self-funding, insured (AXA-PPP, BUPA, Norwich Union, Standard Life, WPA, CSHealthcare, etc) and medico-legal referrals.
Our radiologists do not offer screening CT or MRI scans ("body MOT"). On current scientific evidence we consider such scans unethical. We do however provide an ultrasound screening service for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) for only £50.
This website provides details of the services we offer, including prices and booking instructions for radiology (x-rays) and scans. We hope the information will be useful for patients and referring medical professionals.
The website author, Dr Paul Grech, is a full-time NHS Consultant Radiologist and member of the Hereford Radiology Group. For details of our radiologists and qualifications click on our Radiologist page.
This website does not offer medical advice but a consultant radiologist will be pleased to discuss your requirements if you contact us using the online enquiry form.
Our radiology service offers a highly competitive pricing structure without compromising quality. Because we provide the full range of radiological investigations and scans, we can recommend the most appropriate for you. Your investigation will be reported by a named UK-based Consultant Radiologist with individual private practice insurance. You will receive a copy of your scan on CD and we will also store a digital copy of the study should it be required later.
We can do this by utilising equipment when it would otherwise be idle. We don't have huge advertising budgets or other expensive overheads. We don't have highly paid directors or shareholders to support. We pass these savings on to you. Income generated from private patients supports our NHS Trust. Our private patients benefit from reduced costs and a superior service. Our local NHS hospital benefits from the income provided.
We see patients in a modern and safe environment with adequate parking and waiting areas so that you can bring a companion or family member. Our fixed MRI and CT scanners are sited in a recently purpose built facility and maintained to the highest standards of performance and safety. The mobile scanners we use are the most modern fleet in the UK.
A word about co-payments or "NHS top-ups"
There has been much media comment on rules which deny NHS care to patients who have paid privately for part of their treatment. This does not apply to private scans or radiology. Patients entitled to NHS care may avoid diagnostic delays by having scans privately and continuing treatment as NHS patients. Guidance can be found here.
