PERFORMANCE: Building work to accommodate a second CT scanner and change ways of working is underway at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

The trust is moving to digital transmission of images and the department will also be able to carry out a wider variety of day case procedures thanks to a brand new interventional suite.

Darren Hobbs, clinical radiology manager, said: “We are really excited about the improvements and will be proud of what we can offer our patients in the near future. Some of the new equipment will mean we can see more patients more quickly and can save money at the same time.”
