Services to NHS

One of the Healthcare NHS Trusts in Greater Manchester is one such client that has benefited from our services: “….

“In both these schemes, I was impressed by the speed with which Diagnostic Healthcare was able to set up quality responses. The Patient survey done as part of the contract was well thought through, and showed that patients appreciated the service and surroundings of Diagnostic Healthcare”.

Our ethos is reflected by a combination of high quality diagnostic services, professional personnel, high quality patient care and excellence in customer services (for patients and users) while at the same time, backed by flexible 24/7 capability and access to a network of global telemedicine consultancy expertise.

We value the patient experience and excel at providing a fast access service in order to further improve waiting times at all stages of the pathway.
