We’re a specialist medical imaging centre working to improve the lives of people affected by cancer and other serious conditions.

We do this by providing the best possible patient care using high-quality imaging equipment, and by being actively involved in medical research.

We serve both NHS and private patients who need MRI, CT, and PET-CT scans. Most patients are from North West London and Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, but some are from further afield.


Our vision

We will lead the way in imaging for the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of cancer and other clinical conditions.

Our values

For our patients and referrers:

Providing world class diagnostic imaging

Responding promptly to patient and referrer needs

Improving patient outcomes

Demonstrating clinical excellence

Enabling clinical and technology advancements


Annual report and financial statements (audited)

How to find us

We're based in Greater London, just inside the M25.

By Car

There are three entrances to Mount Vernon Hospital leading to car parks.

Gates 1 and 2 are located on Rickmansworth Road (A404). Both have large car parks. It is often easier to find a space to park in these car parks, but they are further from Paul Strickland Scanner Centre.

Gate 3 is on White Hill. This is the nearest car park for Paul Strickland Scanner Centre.
