Hear from our patients and service users

Thank you for all your kindness on my visit, it is never an easy exercise, and with 2 bad shoulders I felt it!!! I cannot say enough though for the help and kindness shown to me. I will recommend your services without reservation


I would like to thank you for your professional, prompt and efficient scan yesterday. I was contacted by my GP 7 o'clock last evening stating I had a prolapsed disc and needed surgery ASAP. Therefore, money well spent and hopefully a speedy road to recovery. Please convey my thanks to the relevant staff.


I was so impressed not just by the speed in which the scan was offered and the rapidness of the results but also how fantastic the experience was overall. Unfortunately, I don't know their names but the two ladies who managed the scan were both informative, incredibly helpful and such lovely ladies. Thank you very much


I just wanted to thank the ladies who did my scan. I am quite claustrophobic and they couldn't have been nicer and more understanding. I can't remember their names but they were two very nice ladies who made me feel so much more at ease and did everything they possibly could to make it as stress free as possible. Thank you very much

Holly explains about her ultrasound scan

My Chiropractor referred me to AECC a few years back for an ultrasound scan. Thanks to them, I was able to show my GP something wasn't right with my hip. X-rays, MRI, CT, Physiotherapy and a referral to a specialist all happened thanks to that initial scan at AECC

MRI - different from tunnel scanner

Thank you very much for being so efficient, professional and most charming when I came in for my MRI scan. The experience was totally different from the tunnel scanner, which I have never enjoyed. I was apprehensive as I have been in pain for several weeks and could not lay still on the flat bed of the tunnel scanner last week. You soon put me at ease and I was delighted
