Medical Imaging – Increased Wait Times
People needing to have medical imaging or scans done at BRHS should be aware that wait times for appointments is currently longer than usual.
It may take our staff a few extra days to get back to you for routine appointments.
Wait times could be up to 4 weeks for some services.
This is due to an increased workload at the moment and additional time spent cleaning equipment between clients, per COVID-19 requirements.
Urgent imaging will be given priority.
If you have any questions about your appointment for medical imaging or scans, call 5150 3470, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
