STRUCTURE: Woking Community Hospital has extended the opening hours of its x-ray facilities to include weekends.
Woking Walk-In Centre, based at the community hospital, will be able to offer x-ray on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.
Alison Edgington, chief executive of Surrey Community Health, said: “This is just one example of the huge amount of work we are doing in the community to take the pressure off the acute hospitals.
“This is a win, win situation for everyone; staff are less pressured and more importantly the patient can get diagnosed and treated quickly.”
