X-ray vision of the future at hospital
NEW and improved x-ray facilities have now been opened at a Lincolnshire hospital.
Work has now been completed on a second X-ray room at County Hospital, Louth which will increase the number of patients who can have X-ray examinations at the site.
The hospital previously had one x-ray room which carried out all radiology for the site.
In addition to the second X-ray room, the whole radiology department is undergoing minor refurbishment to improve the look and feel of the department for patients, staff and visitors.
Radiology Service Manager Paul Clark said: "The new equipment will allow us to improve the patient journey through the radiology department, reducing waiting times and increasing X-ray capacity.
"We will be able to provide a more efficient service to the trust and accommodate more x-ray requests from external providers such as GPs".
