Upcoming Review — this page is due to be reviewed by 01/10/2021. The information shown here may be outdated.

Waiting times are slightly longer for InHealth MSK ultrasound, so please refer to trusts instead to support parity across the region and faster access for patients.

Do not send urgent or suspected cancer requests to InHealth as they will be returned back to the GP, delaying the patient pathway. InHealth accepts routine requests only, and current waiting times are six weeks. 

RAG clinical prioritisation for all new GP direct-access imaging referrals

The NCL imaging departments have agreed on a set of standardised imaging prioritisation categories that are to be applied to all future referrals. These must be applied whether that GP is making a referral to independent sector or NHS service providers. For details, see the NCL Covid-19 GP website.

Barnet MRI referrals

MRI referrals by Barnet practices need to be submitted via the Barnet referral management service. For details see the Barnet Referal Management information pages.
