We have teamed up with scan.com to streamline your scan scheduling experience. Scan.com is a market-leading medical imaging booking platform that provides a quick and easy referral of your clients for private MRI, ultrasound, and CT scans nationwide at over 150 imaging centres.
We listened to your struggles. The admin burden placed upon you when you want a radiological investigation for your clients; writing a referral letter to the client’s GP/family doctor; the client waiting for a delayed appointment with their GP; the delays in the booking and the delay to appropriate client management!
Rehab Guru and scan.com have worked hard to offer you this fantastic service, allowing you and your clients to receive reassurance and the chance to make a clinical decision far quicker than you could before. This will enable you to take back control of the client management and improve the service you provide with a thorough, timely and client-centred service.
For many AHPs, requesting a scan requires a written letter to your client’s GP requesting a referral for imaging. This is both time-consuming, labour-intensive and frustrating for all concerned, not least for the client, who is not in control, lacks information and often waits months for their scan. The scan.com model changes all this. Requesting a scan for your client is quick and easy, all from the Rehab Guru dashboard. Only three pieces of information are required to book a scan. These are scan type (ultrasound, MRI, CT), date of birth, and additional information. This information is securely sent directly to the scan.com team for processing – see ‘the step-by-step process. All of the questions relating to safety and appropriateness are dealt with by the expert clinicians at scan.com.

The scan.com story - Scan.com started this journey with a singular focus in mind: making medical imaging scans easier for people to find, schedule, and understand.
Scan.com’s mission is to make medical imaging accessible and effortless.Their story began in 2017, when osteopath Jasper Nissim and consultant radiologist Dr Khalid Latief noticed the inefficiencies of arranging scans for their patients. When people were concerned about their health, they didn’t want to be told ‘you’re on a waiting list,’ or ‘you’ll hear back soon.’
Together with Charlie Bullock (CEO), Oliver Knight (COO) and Joe Daniels (Head of Front-End and UX), they built National MRI Scan - a web referral service to seamlessly connect patients to a nationwide network of private MRI scanners.
Within 5 years, National MRI Scan became the UK’s largest diagnostic imaging platform, with multiple imaging modalities, over 150 partner scanning centres, a wealth of patient-focused resources, and a team of experienced clinicians providing referrals and patient care.
In 2022, National MRI Scan rebranded to Scan.com and launched their innovative booking solution in the United States and Germany. In the UK, they also created a referral portal and connected integrations through trusted partner platforms for allied health professionals (AHPs) to access medical imaging in the course of treating their patients.
