Diagnostic Imaging Suite

Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust

Customer Satisfaction

ModuleCo Healthcare provided an innovative solution to the Trust’s requirements to house two MR scanners and one CT scanner within a very tight timescale. It is one of the first diagnostic imaging facilities built with off-site construction methods. It includes the UK's first open field 0.6T MRI scanner with the less claustrophobic design. The new building has blended well with its surroundings and we look forward to a partnership to ensure that the high specifications required for state of the art Diagnostic Imaging Facilities are maintained and further developed in the future.
