Radiology Requests

Information for patients requiring radiology exams 

South East London NHS has implemented a new electronic requesting system for radiology exams (X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI, Bone Density and Nuclear Medicine). 

This means that if your GP wants you to have one of these diagnostic examinations, there is no longer a need for paper request form. The results from this examination will also be sent back to the GP electronically. This process will slightly vary depending on the type of exam.
