Agfa HealthCare reports that CR systems and radiology reporting stations are helping the UK’s largest primary care centre to achieve its goal of providing comprehensive front-line diagnostic services to people living in and around Aldershot.
Opened last year, the Aldershot Centre for Health combines army and NHS primary care services within one purpose-built building, and brings together GPs, army doctors, dental services, clinicians, community nurses and a pharmacy.
With the recent installation of the CR 35-X and CR 85-X systems, together with radiologist reporting stations, patients no longer need to travel to Frimley Park Hospital, which manages the radiology service at the new centre, or to the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot.
Instead images captured at the new centre are sent to the Agfa HealthCare Impax PACS at Frimley Park allowing them to be available for instant expert review.
