General information

About Imaging Within Gate 19:

There are 2 MRI scanners, 2 CT scanners, 2 inpatient X-ray rooms and 5 interventional procedure rooms, covering a wide range of scans and specialities. 

This level also has its own day case area, providing post procedural care for the more complex cases.

To maintain privacy and dignity for patients, we are unable to have relatives within the day case area.  We do offer the option for an accompanying person to be present for the consent process only.   

Current demands on NBT beds may mean, there will be delays in the daily scheduling for your procedure.

Any comments or concerns

We would like to know what you, your family and friends think about the services we provide. We value this feedback as it assists us to shape our services to meet the needs of our patients. 

We hope that you are satisfied with your care/treatment, but if there are matters that trouble you, or your family, we would ask that initially you make your feelings known as soon as possible.

For further information please refer to the ‘Concerns, Complaints and Compliments’ leaflet.

If you or the individual you are caring for need support reading this leaflet please ask a member of staff for advice.
