July '13 – NHS AQP ultrasound services mobilised

Ultrasound Direct together with contract partner provide community ultrasound services to GPs via the NHS AQP program.

Initially operating throughout Bedfordshire, Luton, Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland, the non-obstetric (NOUS) service has been well received by both GP’s and patients alike who appreciate the convenience and quality of service delivered by an experienced and dedicated ultrasound modality provider.

The company has invested in more full time Sonographers and state of the art equipment, thus extending its lead as the largest private Sonographer network in the UK.

In particular, significant investment has gone into a separate IT platform for AQP business enabling Sonographers operating remotely to report seamlessly back to NHS referrers. Reports and images are also made available to NHS secondary care institutes via secure server for follow ups, a facility that has already been used successfully to reduce follow up referral time.

Ultrasound Direct will use its scalable platform and 15 year’s experience in service delivery to become a significant UK provider of NHS community ultrasound.
