You said, we did – GP walk-in X-ray service
Our GP colleagues asked if the hospital’s Imaging Department could extend the hours of the walk-in X-ray service to accommodate patients who wished to attend after work. GPs refer hundreds of patients to the department every month.
The hospital’s own clinicians also suggested this change so the flow of patients through the department could be more evenly spread and waiting times reduced. The Imaging Departments sees outpatients, GP referral patients and inpatients who come from the wards for scans.
The GP X-ray referral service now runs from 14:00-19:30 from Monday to Friday. Tina Jones, Operations Manager - Medical Physics, said: “We want to run a service which is convenient for our patients and the new evening slots are really popular with patients who come after work.”
