As many people across the Gold Coast and Tweed areas are impacted by COVID-19, we want our patients and referrers to know that during this very difficult time, South Coast Radiology are putting in place measures to assist.
To that end we announce, effective Monday 6th April 2020, we will Bulk Bill all ultrasound scans, ultrasound guided procedures and mammograms at all SCR practice locations.
This temporary Bulk Bill initiative underscores our commitment to support the financial health and well-being of our community during these trying times. Our core value as an organisation is simply: patients first. As we all cope with this crisis together, we feel anything we can do to ease the anxiety for our community is the right thing to do.
