COVID-19 - Important information for patients with imaging appointments (e.g. X-rays, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, Angiography and Fluoroscopy)

At the moment our imaging call centre is receiving an unprecedented number of calls from patients checking whether they should still attend for their appointment. In order to help us, please do not telephone the call centre to check this. You will be contacted directly should your appointment need to be cancelled or postponed. If you are not contacted you should attend as planned unless you are self-isolating or have symptoms associated with COVID-19 or have any cold or flu like symptoms. Many thanks for your support with this.


The Medical Imaging department – sometimes called the X-Ray, Diagnostic or Radiology department ’ - provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic and interventional services at all hospitals within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals including: Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Northern General Hospital, Weston Park Hospital and Charles Clifford Dental Hospital.
