Company Profile

Health Screening Now is a trading name of Diagnostic Healthcare Ltd. Established in 2004 and based in Manchester, Diagnostic Healthcare has expanded rapidly and is now one of the largest privately owned providers of healthcare services to both the NHS and private patients in the North West of England. DHC specialises in the provision of GP Services, Ultrasound scans, Health Screening, Bone Density, and MRI examinations.

Our 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’.
