COVID-19 & visiting the Edinburgh Imaging Facilities

The current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation means our working practises have changed:

  • Please attend on your own for your appointment whenever possible
  • If you require assistance, bring only one person with you
  • Arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment time
  • On arrival, we will direct you to wash your hands
  • We - the radiographers - will wear personal protective equipment (PPE) where needed

We have adopted these measures to protect you & our staff. We appreciate your understanding & cooperation at this challenging time.
