NHS England, InHealth and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) have now agreed a formal partnership arrangement, setting out how they will provide PET-CT scanners across the Thames Valley area.

It creates new and additional services for patients who need these important services across the Thames Valley provided by InHealth while sustaining the PET-CT scanning service on the Churchill site provided by the OUH.

The new sites will use modern mobile scanners, with the aim of putting in place permanent facilities in the longer term. A timescale for this has not yet been agreed.
