Pendleton Gateway Community Centre in Salford, which was opened in 2009 at a cost of £17 million, covers a range of community services including two GP practices, a library and specialist children’s facility, a community dental service, pharmacy and an x-ray and therapy suite.
The centre has installed a Toshiba Aplio XG ultrasound scanner with Precision Imaging, a high frequency linear array transducer and full cardiac software.
Staff from Salford Royal Hospital are providing the ultrasound service on a day-to-day basis and a visiting cardiologist from the Royal Manchester Children’s hospital provides the cardiology service, specifically for paediatrics.
