Watch what to expect during your MRI:
New Hall Hospital currently provides a Mobile CT scanning service twice a month on a Tuesday. Appointments are available from 8.15am - 7.30pm and are booked by Radiology with a referral from your Consultant or private (self pay) referrals for your GP. Privately insured patients referred by their GP may require authorisation from their insurer before an appointment can be booked.
