Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

Tests and scans

We offer an extensive range of tests and diagnostic imaging at QMC and City Hospital. Diagnostic imaging is the creation of images mainly through X-rays, ultrasound (sound waves) or MRI (magnetic fields). These images give medical staff the information they need to make a correct diagnosis of a clinical condition.


Making, changing or cancelling an appointment (GP referrals)

If you have been referred by your GP you will be asked to contact our call centre on 0115 875 4568 to arrange an appointment. If you are unable to attend the appointment, please contact our call centre as soon as possible to change or cancel your appointment.


Clinic referrals

Your doctor will tell you whether a digital imaging examination can be performed on the same day as a clinic appointment that has already been booked. If this is not possible we will contact you to arrange a suitable date and time.
