At Spire Fylde Coast Hospital we provide fast access to a wide range of diagnostic tests and scans. We use the latest technology and techniques wherever possible, including MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound, to get the best outcome for you.
Booking your scans or tests with Spire can provide an early warning of health problems, help your doctor to identify and monitor conditions or rule them out. Once you’ve had your test, an expert member of Spire’s team can provide a diagnosis and advise on the most appropriate treatment if this is necessary.
In 2021, we unveiled a new, state-of-art MRI scanner, which will speed up diagnoses for patients with cancer and other diseases.
The scanner represents a £1.5m investment by Spire Healthcare and will enable up to 21 patients a day to be scanned to detect cancer, cardiac disease and urgent neurological, gynaecological and orthopaedic conditions. The scanner will help provide diagnoses for both NHS and private patients, which will alleviate pressure on waiting lists and reduce waiting times for a scan.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Fylde Coast Hospital.
