Diagnostic services at Spire Bushey Hospital

One of the worst parts of being ill or injured can be not knowing what’s wrong and how quickly you’ll be able to return to the activities you enjoy.

You can have peace of mind that at Spire Bushey Hospital you will be seen by experts in their fields who can provide rapid access to state-of-the-art diagnostic services for all privately insured and self-funding patients. Where possible, we will see patients on the same day they enquire. 


Our services are designed to help your GP and consultant make an accurate diagnosis, and help to monitor progress for patients undergoing a course of treatment. Patients who come to Spire Bushey Hospital for a diagnostic procedure can expect to receive the highest quality treatment and care in a clean, comfortable and relaxed private hospital environment.

Diagnostic imaging and scans

The various types of scans available are all painless, non-invasive and accurate, and the range of scanning capabilities at Spire Bushey Hospital ensure that any body area or structure, bone, soft tissue, vein and blood vessel can be scanned to investigate and determine whether further treatment or investigation is required. Our qualified radiographers will guide you through your experience during scanning and a consultant radiologist will report their clinical findings to your referring consultant or GP.

Our Radiology Department is staffed by highly experienced professionals who will provide you with a caring, efficient and highly specialised service. As an integrated department within our private hospital, help is at hand should you require onward referral, treatment, surgery or advice following the results of your scan.
