MEDICA NIGHTHAWK ticks all the boxes. Leading UK based consultant radiologists with at least two years’ NHS experience providing authoritative guidance on emergency cases day or night.
The MEDICA NIGHTHAWK DEPARTMENT provides a team of consultant radiologists, working collaboratively, to deliver a reporting service based on full knowledge of symptoms, imaging and history – and all within 60 minutes or 30 minutes in support of your stroke pathways. Referrers and radiographers can contact our radiologist for discussion or clarification at any time.
Our radiologists are supported within the NIGHTHAWK DEPARTMENT by an in-house support team who are available 24/7/365. Each step in the patient journey is visible to clients in real time. This includes details of exams justified and rejected which allows us to work in partnership with Radiology and their referrers to ensure the service complies with local needs.
The MEDICA radiologist provides an authorised report into your RIS so any clinician in the hospital has access to it. This is fully equivalent to having one of your radiologists right there – appropriate, incisive, accurate diagnostics ALWAYS save your organisation money.
