As well as our own highly trained, highly talented, professional imaging staff, we employ experienced healthcare support staff and administrative officers to ensure the patient experience is faultless throughout.

We ask all patients to complete feedback forms so we can rate our performance and identify issues where we could improve. The results of the feedback analysis is published for our patients and clients to inspect and review.

A 'Patient Focused' Service

Many companies say that they offer a personalised service.  Beehive Solutions REALLY provides a personalised service: 

With our Comunity-based Ultrasound Service; whereever possible, examination appointments are booked according to the convenience of the patient and we try to speak to each patient by telephone to ensure it exactly meets their needs.

We are available by phone or email for patients to contact, to discuss their examination, appointment or answer any other relevant query. If our highly experience administration team cannot answer the query, there is always a qualified Sonographer on hand to give an opinion.  Out-of-hours, we have a telephone answering service and all messages are followed up as a priority the next working day.

Unless the patient prefers to wait, or the ultrasound is required on a particular occasion (eg “week 14 of a pregnancy”, or “6 weeks after operation” etc), we try to contact all patients with in 2 days of receiving the examination request and to perform the ultrasound examination with in 1 week.

We talk to patients and deliver excellent clinical care in a way that is friendly, convenient and well administered. Our methods are as follows:

Following there examinations our patients are given a verbal and written report so that they do not have to wait weeks before seeing their Doctor again

Patient Feedback

Across all our Ultrasound Managed Services, all patients are given a patient satisfaction questionnaire, which can be completed at the time or taken away with a stamped address envelope at the end of the examination. The response rate to this is over 82% completion of the forms. The statistical analysis of the feedback reports is available for patients, public and clients to see.

As the number of patients coming to us increases, so we have increased the number and locations of Ultrasound sessions being provided. This allows us to maintain excellent quality of service without acquiring increasing waiting length waiting lists
