Once you have a referral for a scan from your consultant, please call our Scanning Helpline on 0345 345 4556. Our Helpline staff will organise a scan for you, which often happens as quickly as within 2 weeks of you first calling us. Following your scan, we’ll send a report to your consultant, usually within 10 days. It’s worth you noting that travel expenses to reach your nearest Alliance Medical scanning facility and more complex scans are not covered by your policy.
