Routine Elective Reporting

Routine Elective teleradiology reporting for your non-urgent studies.

With the current shortfall of UK radiologists expected to rise to 3,331 by 2024(4), our routine elective reporting service can relieve the pressure on your increasingly busy radiology teams. 

4ways’ routine elective radiology service provides you with consistent remote reporting support for your non-urgent or backlog studies that do not require reporting within a specified time frame. We can offer support for CT, MRI, PET and plain film modalities.

We offer a dependable and flexible service backed by our extensive panel of UK based, GMC registered, FRCR radiologists.

Working as a virtual department alongside your team, we mirror your workflows and infrastructure, providing reporting in times of increased demand, backlog buildup, sickness, or to cover periods of annual leave.

Why not get in touch to see how we can help with your routine reporting needs?

Clear, accurate reporting

Clear and accurate reporting is a fundamental part of pathology diagnosis and vital to improve patient outcomes.

Unlike some providers, we never outsource your reporting overseas. All our radiologists are UK based, GMC registered consultants which means our reporting is written in a language, style and structure that your clinicians will be instantly familiar with.

Your patient data never leaves the UK and is reported by consultants with intimate knowledge of the reporting procedures and standards you would expect in the NHS.

The turnaround times have been exemplary and are regularly audited together with the accuracy and quality of the radiology reports. The IT infrastructure is robust and the general performance is excellent especially the prompt response to any clinical queries we have made.

Quality control

We audit internally at a higher rate than other UK teleradiology providers and have some of the lowest discrepancy rates in the industry(3).

Reviewing and learning from discrepancies provides evidence of our safety and reporting quality. 

Audit underpins everything we do here at 4ways and is our quality assurance guarantee to you.

Flexible capacity

We understand that your demand will vary week by week. That’s why we don’t demand minimum contracted volumes from our clients. 

Our routine elective reporting allows you to increase your reporting capacity, adapting to fluctuating volumes and busy periods as needed. If demand changes, we can immediately scale our service up or down depending on your needs.

We’re here when you need us, for as much as you need us, all year round.
