The X-ray Service has made changes to its service to support the COVID-19 demand. As a result the X-ray service has split its Radiographer workforce into red and green 24 hours per day (this excludes CT, MRI, Ultrasound, nuclear medicine, breast screening etc.). Please note that the demand of mobile X-ray has seen a huge increase, and staffing out of hours has increased to help support demand as best as possible. Another 3 mobile X-ray machines have been ordered to help with the pressure with demand but please can all areas bear with us, and we thank you for your support during this time.
