Curian Medical – Supporting our local primary school

It is the turn of Kennedy, who works within our Compliance Department to head back to school this afternoon. Each Friday a member of our team head over to St Giles C of E Primary School in Willenhall, to support the children with Golden Reading Hour.

These regular reading sessions are not only valued by the school and the children but also our employees within Curian too. The team benefit from the volunteering opportunity and really enjoy heading over to the school and assisting the children with their reading.

As this academic year draws to a close shortly we look forward to planning our involvement with St Giles for the new academic year.

Providing Solutions within the personal injury sector for affordable diagnostic imaging and rehabilitation services.

Did you know that Curian Medical offer access to one of the largest diagnostic imaging networks?  We continuously look to expand the network with some new facilities recently added within the Thames Valley, North East and South Wales areas.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used frequently within the medico-legal sector and is particularly useful at providing highly detailed images together with valuable and accurate information about the structure of joints, soft tissue and bones of the body.

Just some of the advantages of using this imaging technique include;

  • MRI is harmless for the patient – no radiation is involved
  • Excellent detail makes MRI superior to some of the other imaging techniques available
  • MRI contrast agent (where required) is usually gadolinium which is less allergenic than iodine based contrast agents used in other imaging modalities

It is widely known that there are disadvantages to MRI scanning, however here at Curian Medical we have worked hard to put in place solutions for our customers;

Availability – We have developed one of the largest networks throughout the country ensuring patients no longer have to travel far for diagnostic imaging

Affordability – Curian Medical have implemented fixed fees for our customers in order that our diagnostic imaging services are cost effective and competitive

Results –  Excellent working relationships within our network ensures appointments and results are provided at the earliest opportunity ultimately speeding up any further treatments or rehabilitation that may be required

Contra-indications – Whilst we understand that not everyone is compatible for an MRI scan, we have protocols in place to ensure that each patient completes a safety questionnaire prior to imaging.  Where necessary Curian Medical can co-ordinate alternative imaging techniques or co-ordinate any further investigations, such as x-rays to ensure no contra-indications exist.

Open scanners – We appreciate due to anxiety or claustrophobia that not all patients will be suitable for a conventional MRI scanner.  With this in mind Curian Medical have developed access to a number of Open MRI scanners across the country.

If you would like to hear further information regarding our nationwide diagnostic imaging or rehabilitation services then do feel free to contact Martin Eccles our Business Relationship Manager on 0121 732 9860 or email at meccles@curianmedical.co.uk.
