Company Profile

Established in 2004 and based in Manchester, Diagnostic Healthcare has expanded rapidly to become one of the leading medical imaging providers to both the NHS and private patients. The company is now one of the largest privately owned providers of healthcare services in the North West of England specialising in Ultrasound, Health Screening, Bone Density, and MRI examinations.
Our GP services are led by : Dr. Rashid Bani BSc (Hons), MBBS, DRCOG. Dr. Bani says:
‘I believe in the importance of establishing a trusting relationship with patients, putting them at ease when discussing concerns about their health and involving them in their management plan. I offer the highest quality, evidence based medicine, which is patient focused and unhurried. I feel General Practice should be individually focused on the needs of the patient and not constrained by unavailability of appointments. There should be ease of access with the opportunity to develop a continuing relationship with one doctor. My primary goal is to practice medicine that allows the patient time to get their concerns across, and leave the consultation feeling that they have been listened to and their health needs met’. Dr. Rashid Bani
