Cancer doesn't stop because there is a pandemic. It doesn't stop because schools suddenly close, and it doesn't stop just because the world has been turned upside down.
Our patients need us as much as ever. That's why our team has been doing everything in our power over the past days, weeks and months to make sure Paul Strickland Scanner Centre remains open during this incredibly challenging period.
Every year, thousands of local people need life-changing scans to give their medical teams crucial information about their cancer, which is vital in determining the best treatment. This has not changed.
We want you to know that we are determined to keep our doors open for our patients during this difficult period and will do everything in our power to keep it that way.
If you're having a scan
If you are having a scan in the coming days, be assured that we are adhering to the highest infection control standards. It's essential that you read the patient information we send you very carefully and follow the instructions given by our bookings team. If at all possible, avoid bringing someone with you. This is because we are trying to keep the number of visitors to the centre as low as possible in order to protect our patients.
If you are a family member or friend of someone with cancer, please continue to be there for them during this difficult period.
