Diagnostic Services at Spire Washington Hospital

The radiology department at Spire Washington provides rapid access to some of the latest diagnostic imaging for all private and insured patients, including a one stop breast clinic.

People have busy lives and the availability of daily appointments means you can be seen at a time
that suits you

At Spire Washington Hospital, we’re proud to provide fast access to a selection of the latest modern equipment, all of which have the strongest technical capabilities - ensuring that if further investigation is required, our consultants immediately have all the right information and patients have peace of mind that the next stage of their treatment will be carried out as an absolute priority.

Our highly experienced radiographers and radiologists specialise in musculoskeletal, breast, neurology, vascular, gynaecology, urology and interventional diagnostic procedures.  Whether an ultrasound scan, mammogram, magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI), CT scan or X-Ray is needed, our patients are usually able to have both this and their report back within just five working days so any waiting and worrying is kept to a bare minimum.

To arrange an appointment you will need a referral form or letter from your GP, consultant or therapist for most examinations. We are also happy to accept referrals from physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists for MRI scans and as an integrated department within a private hospital, help is at hand should an onward referral, treatment, surgery or advice be required following the results of your scan.
