COVID guidelines to keep you safe during your MRI scan

We are following Government guidelines to keep you safe during your MRI scan

As a medical service, our London and Manchester MRI centres have remained open during the recent UK lockdown restrictions.

Please note, in light of covid restrictions lifting in England from the 19th of July, we are continuing with all enhanced infection control policies.

As a result of the pandemic, there may be some delays in scan reporting and we will advise you at the time of booking if this is the case. Also, we are currently unable to serve our premium refreshments due to social distancing measures and will reinstate as soon as possible.

Merserena Staff wearing PPE

Increased Protection during Medserena upright MRI scan appointments

Your safety and that of our staff is our utmost priority during the coronavirus pandemic. All MRI scans require close contact between you and the Radiographer, so we’ve implemented strict Social Distancing and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) policies for increased protection in our centres.

Our social distancing policies are designed to help save lives and protect the NHS:

  • You and your +1 guest must attend your appointment in a facemask or face covering
  • Handwashing facilities and hand sanitisers are available for all clients and staff
  • Staff are provided with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) 
  • Daily temperature checks on patients and staff
  • Covid-19 staff testing every 2 weeks
  • Wider spacing of chairs in the waiting rooms 
  • Increased cleaning schedules 
  • Complete cleaning of all clinical areas between appointments

NHS referral

As well as private and self-referrals, we continue to accept NHS referrals whilst many hospitals remain COVID destinations.

You can refer directly online or enquire at our London or Manchester centre. Both locations are connected to the IEP for quick upload of studies to radiology department PACS.
