Patient feedback and complaints

We welcome comments about the diagnostic ultrasound service we provide. Anyone who has had an appointment at our clinic can make a complaint. Where criticism is made we will respond to the complainant and, where necessary, put right what was wrong.

We aim to give the best possible standard of service, both clinical and administrative, at all times. However, there may be times when you feel this has not been achieved.

We operate an NHS complaints procedure to deal with comments, suggestions and complaints about the service we provide. All staff are trained in this procedure and will be happy to give you further information.

We will try to address all your concerns promptly, provide you with an explanation and discuss any action that may be needed to prevent a future occurrence.

Renal Ultrasound Scanning

A renal ultrasound scan is most commonly used when you have loin pain, suffer often from urinary tract infections, have high blood pressure or blood in your urine. However, your doctor may also refer you because you are suffering from other symptoms or he/she maybe concerned about examination findings.

A kidney and bladder ultrasound is also used to help in the diagnosis of bladder problems and in males for prostate problems.

Your doctor might also want to know how well you can empty you urinary bladder. We are able to measure the remaining urine volume in your bladder after voiding.

Amongst other conditions, a renal ultrasound scan can detect:

  • Kidney stones
  • Cysts
  • Tumours
  • Congenital abnormalities of the renal tract (these are abnormalities that have been present from birth)
  • Blockage of the urinary collecting system
  • Effects of infection
  • Bladder stones
  • Bladder tumours
  • Bladder diverticula
  • Post-micturition volume
  • Enlargement of the prostate
