Thames Valley PET-CT services
InHealth is a leading provider of PET-CT diagnostic imaging to the NHS and we are proud to have supported NHS services for more than 20 years. Our mission is to contribute to providing outstanding care for patients and we have carried out 15,000 PET-CT scans annually, with a patient satisfaction rate of over 99% (FFT). Our highly skilled, specialist team are experts in the provision of this service and operate advanced scanners across the UK to deliver modern, efficient services for patients.
We are pleased to be the preferred bidder for expanding the PET-CT service in the Thames Valley region and hope to have the opportunity to work with the NHS to extend the service, improving access and convenience for patients and reducing travel times. Our advanced equipment delivers the highest image quality and the InHealth mobile PET-CT scanner intended to be used in the early years of the service across Thames Valley is state of the art, with a 128slice CT, where the majority of current scanners have 64 slices or less.
Any claim that our scanning services are inferior is without foundation. Patients should be reassured that our advanced equipment delivers high-quality images, and that our services are delivered as a full part of the NHS, provided to patients free of charge.
In addition, we will help manage workforce shortages by providing nationally-established NHS PET-CT ARSAC Practitioners to supplement reporting and clinical leadership for the Thames Valley region.
Our offer to provide NHS PET-CT services across the Thames Valley is based on clinical and service quality, improved patient access, investment in equipment, value for the taxpayer and an extension of services across the Thames Valley region for NHS cancer patients. We understand that there is a process to be followed in considering the future of these services in the Thames Valley and we will continue to fully engage with it, working closely and constructively with NHS England and all local NHS partners to improve access to high quality services for the local population.
InHealth is a long-experienced and well-respected NHS provider in both hospital and out-of-hospital settings. We provide tests, scans and treatments for more than 2 million people each year, the majority of these to NHS patients and service users, from more than 800 sites.
