Your Visit to the PET Centre

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are having to make significant changes to our services which may require postponing of non-urgent appointments. However, the PET Centre remains open, and if you require a PET-CT scan we will do our utmost to ensure you get it.

When we contact you ahead of your appointment, we will now enquire about symptoms of COVID-19. If you have symptoms, we will ask you to defer your appointment.

Some non-urgent appointments may be postponed without a future date being arranged at this stage. If we postpone your appointment you will remain on our waiting list and we will contact you in due course.

If you have any questions about your upcoming PET-CT scan please contact us by email or telephone (see the Contact Us page for details). Our phone lines may be busy and there may be a wait for your call to be answered.

If you have any questions please visit our FAQ page. If your query is not covered in the FAQs please Contact Us.

Consultation at the PET Centre

It was lovely to receive this box of chocolates from the family of a recent patient together with a thank-you card explaining how our service helped.

Image Use

The PET Centre often looks back at the images taken to help your doctors treat your illness. This is usually to teach other doctors, or sometimes to help with research into the type of illness you are being scanned for.

The department can be contacted by telephone, e-mail or post. Directions, travel information and building maps can be found here (for the PET Centre at St Thomas' Hospital), or here (for the PET Suite within the Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital). Visit our Contact Us page for further details.
