As an essential service all our branches will be open.
Morton & Partners Radiologists is a radiology practice and falls under the essential healthcare services as defined by the National Health, we will therefore, remain open during the COVID-19 (Corona virus) lockdown.
Tips for patients:
We advise patients who have an appointment for screening studies (such as annual routine Mammograms and Bone Mineral Density Scans) to please reschedule for a date after the National Lockdown. This is to reduce the risk of possible exposure for non-urgent cases. In other words, these are scans that are viewed as “general check-up”, most times not referred by a clinician.
Should you have a scheduled appointment at any Morton & Partners branch, please use your appointment confirmation (emailed to you) as proof for authorities during the National Lockdown. This will include contact details and date/time stamps to allow you to travel to your intended appointment.
