Should I wear a mask when attending for my appointment?

The UK Government guidance is that all visitors and patients to AML scanning units (mobile and static) should wear an appropriate face covering before entering the unit and should continue to wear a face covering throughout their visit.

All patients (regardless of age or clinical vulnerability) undergoing a scan will be offered a Surgical Mask. However, if a patient has their own facial covering, then:

  • For non-MRI procedures: Should a patient have their own facial covering and their preference is to wear their own face covering, then this is allowed.
  • For MRI procedures: Patients will not be allowed to wear their own facemask or facial covering in the MRI scanners, since it has not been tested to be MRI safe and could place the your safety or the image quality at risk. Upon arrival in the MRI unit, all patients will be issued with a Surgical Face Mask.

All visitors should bring and wear their own face coverings before entering an AML scanning unit. Should a visitor not have their own face covering, then they will be offered a Surgical Face Mask to wear while they are in the unit.

What happens if I fall ill during my appointment?

If you fall ill whilst attending your appointment we will ask you to return home immediately if you are well enough to do so. Then for you to follow Public Health Advice and self–isolate. If you are too unwell to travel home we will isolate you and arrange ongoing support and care for you.
