A full range of pathology services are provided. The department will accept requests from Practitioners on their headed paper. Urgent results can be telephoned or faxed if required.
An ultrasound scan, sometimes called a sonogram, is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body. We are experienced examining the following:
- Aortic Aneurism
- Doppler (Vascular)
If an injection into joint procedures for pain relief is required that will be carried out by an appropriate specialist.
Appointments can be offered as early as the day of referral. For other procedures, depending on the preparation and speciality, an appointment will offered within the next 5 days. GP's can now refer directly for MRI, CT (both of which will be carried out at our sister hospital in Ashtead) and Ultrasound.
