The next phase of the imaging equipment replacement is now underway as work has started at Heartlands to replace the CT scanner.
There is now a temporary CT scanner operational which is located in the middle of the X-ray department. This means that the CT department will be separated for around six to eight weeks as work is undertaken to install the replacement scanner.
Whilst the work is carried out, some disruption to service may occur until the re-opening of the CT department with the new scanner in late March.
Following this work, the old CT scanner at Good Hope will be removed in late March with the installation of the new scanner beginning late April. The new scanner at Good Hope should be operational in mid May 2017.
There will also be some disruption to the CT service at Good Hope while the work is carried out but once complete, the equipment upgrade will make a huge difference to not only the service but to all our hospital sites, patients and staffs’ care and experience.
