UHS guidelines for GP ultrasound referrals in adults
The Radiology department at University hospital Southampton in 2018, in conjunction with Secondary care specialities and the GP Liaison Team, created the UHSNFT “ UNIVERSITY HOPSITAL SOUTHAMPTON GUIDELINES FOR GP ULTRASOUND REFERRALS IN ADULTS”. These guidelines are interactive and available when requesting ultrasounds. They can be accessed via ICE, DXS and the hospital webpage. Hard copies were made available for each primary care setting.
If you have a query or would like advice before placing a Radiology request, there is the Radiology Advice and Guidance pathway via ERS or you can contact the department directly using the e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your query will be directed to the most appropriate member of staff.
The Ultrasound Guidelines for UHS and HHFT are both on our GP Portal.
