1. Total number of and the manufacturer and model number(s) of each individual:
o MRI scanner
o CT scanner
o PET scanner
o SPECT scanner
o Ultrasound scanner
o Flexible Endoscope [An estimate of the number and predominant manufacturer brand will suffice]
o Catheter Lab X-ray machines
2. The year each individual scanner was purchased, the purchase method**, cost and the scheduled replacement year for each individual:
o MRI scanner
o CT scanner
o PET scanner
o SPECT scanner
Please state the total cost for trust purchases and annual payments if lease or MES.
Please indicate if equipment was purchased through a group purchasing organisation
3. How each of the following equipment has been purchased (e.g. contract with OEM, NHS Supply Chain catalogue) and how often they are replaced on average:
o Ultrasound scanner
o Sets of Flexible Endoscopes
o Catheter Lab CT machines
An estimate of how often the trust aims to replace the listed equipment would be useful (e.g. once every 2 years).
4. The maintenance provider (e.g. the OEM or a third party) and the annual maintenance cost (if applicable) for each individual:
o MRI scanner
o CT scanner
o PET scanner
o SPECT scanner
o Ultrasound scanner
o Catheter Lab CT machines
Might be done by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) (e.g. Siemens maintenance for a Siemens MRI machine) or a third party. If so, please state the provider name.
If no listed maintenance provider, please state – possibly the case for ultrasound.
5. Staffed hours for each individual: (Please note which of the individual scanners are available 24/7 for A&E purposes.)
o MRI scanner
o CT scanner
o PET scanner
o SPECT scanner
Please state hours each scanner is manned. (e.g. 9am – 6pm, Mon-Fri). Scanners used by A&E departments presumably must be 24/7, so please indicate these where relevant.
6. Number of scans/procedures performed annually in period financial year 2005/06 – 2015/16 for the following: [See the attachment for the relevant OPCS and modality ID codes].
o MRI scans*
o CT scans*
o PET scans*
o SPECT scans*
o Ultrasound scans
o Endoscopy procedures (Upper GI, Lower GI and Urological)
o Cardiac Angiography and Angioplasty procedures
o Cardiac Electrophysiology procedures
*For MRI, CT, PET and SPECT these may be covered by submissions to HSICIC for the Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DID) (http://www.hscic.gov.uk/did), but we are looking for more granular data by individual machine if possible.
7. Number of scans/procedures performed by external providers on behalf of the trust in this same period. How much was paid per scan/procedures on average? Please list by external provider name. For the following:
o MRI scans
o CT scans
o PET scans
o SPECT scans
o Ultrasound scans
o Endoscopy procedures (Upper GI, Lower GI and Urological)
o Cardiac Angiography and Angioplasty procedures
o Cardiac Electrophysiology procedures
Number of activities performed by an external provider (NHS or Non-NHS), data may be collected by CCGs.
8. Average cost per scan from by year for the period 2005/06 – 2015/16 for the following:
o MRI scans
o CT scans
o PET scans
o SPECT scans
9. The provider of tracers for PET (e.g. FDG) and annual spend on tracers.
