Scan.com And Physio First Join Forces To Provide Efficient Imaging to 2,000+ Private Physiotherapists and Their Patients

Scan.com are delighted to announce our partnership with Physio First, the trade association for chartered physiotherapists in private practice, and professional network of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

Physio First represents over 2,000 registered physiotherapists in private practice, while Scan.com provides fast, high-quality MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-ray scans across 150+ nationwide clinics.

Physio First members can now recommend imaging for their patients via a dedicated Scan.com link. Patients can select the scanning options that work for them, and receive discounted rates across MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-ray scans.
