To receive a DXA scan, you’ll first need to be referred by your GP. When we receive the referral from your GP we will contact you to make your appointment. You can decide where this will be – we have a range of locations and we’ll let you know what slots are available and where. We’ll then send you a confirmation letter plus any other information relevant to the scan you’ll be having with us.
A couple of days before your appointment we’ll also send you a text, or give you a call to double check that you’re still able to come. If you know before this that you won’t be able to make it to your appointment please contact the centre to let us know as soon as you can. We’ll do our best to reschedule your appointment for the date and time that suits you.
On the day of your appointment please give yourself plenty of time to find us. We aim to run appointments on time, therefore if you’re late you may not be seen. If you are running late, please let us know and we’ll do our best to still see you. When you arrive, check in at reception and take a seat. The clinician will call you when they’re ready to perform your scan.
Your results will be sent to your GP within two days of your scan.
