We’re delighted to announce that our £4.6 million extension to our new Scunthorpe MRI is complete – and we’ve already welcomed our first patient.
Everything has been designed to put you at your ease, from the Sky Inside ceiling panels – LED panels which give the impression you’re looking out at a beautiful blue sky – to a calming mural spanning one wall.
The MRI table can also be dropped far lower making it easier for you to get on and off and make yourself comfortable.
Andrew Barley, 67, from East Butterwick, said: “I think the new improvements are absolutely brilliant. I felt more relaxed than the last time I had an MRI done. I have been coming to Scunthorpe hospital since the 1980s and I cannot praise the staff enough.”
We have also made improvements to our waiting area, changing facilities and consultation areas.
Our Director of Estates and Facilities and Programme Director , Jug Johal, said: “The extension of our Scunthorpe MRI suite is a key aspect of our ongoing work to improve our buildings and facilities on the site.
“Having this additional scanner in place will enable us to offer patients a vastly improved service. It has doubled our scanning capacity at Scunthorpe, allowing our specialist clinicians to see people more quickly, diagnose and monitor conditions and get you the treatment they need.
“It will also increase our capability to carry out a wide range of specialist scans, while the addition of new anaesthetic and recovery areas and additional monitoring equipment means that many patients will no longer need to travel to undergo scans.”
