How do I make an appointment

Can I book an ultrasound scan myself?

YES –  anyone who would like to have an ultrasound scan can have it performed privately.

Alternatively, your GP could refer you for a scan on the NHS, if appropriate.

To refer yourself privately or on the NHS you can make an appointment, by calling Diagnostic Healthcare on 0161 929 5679.  You can choose from a wide range of convenient appointment times, including weekends and evenings.

Please note that if your GP or consultant has referred you, we will require the completion of a referral form online.

Ultrasound Diagnostic This form is for non-NHS referrals

Ultrasound Diagnostic NHS This for is for NHS referrals


You will normally be offered an appointment within 5 days of the receipt of a referral. The results and a report including a treatment recommendation, are sent to the original referrer within a maximum of two days of the test being completed.

Alternatively if you have made a self-referral you will receive the results immediately after the scan.  You will then need to make an appointment with your GP for the results to be explained to you.
