Prime Health Diagnostics Ltd opened in June 2012 and provides diagnostic healthcare services in a five to ten-mile radius around Weybridge, Surrey. The diagnostic imaging service, delivered 3T Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Digital X-ray and Ultrasound services. The provider is subcontracted by a local private hospital to facilitate a choose & book NHS contract.
The main service provided was diagnostic screening however, it also provided a GP and a wide range of other health therapies. We did not inspect the GP service as part of this inspection. Most of the MRI referrals are for musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging but also have a smaller number of neurological, urological and prostate referrals throughout the year. The x-ray and ultrasound services are mainly musculoskeletal (MSK) orientated, but also include other specialities.
We last inspected this location in January 2013. Our inspection found the provider compliant with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010
We inspected this service using our comprehensive inspection methodology. We carried out the unannounced inspection on 9th October 2018.
To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we ask the same five questions of all services: are they safe, effective, caring, responsive to people's needs, and well-led? Where we have a legal duty to do so we rate services’ performance against each key question as outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.
Throughout the inspection, we took account of what people told us and how the provider understood and complied with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
