The roll out of Canon Medical CT Scan Units as part of NHS England’s COVID-19 recovery plan continues, with the delivery of a facility to Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. It will increase the number of scans carried out in the area by 20 per cent and reduce waiting times for diagnostic CT imaging.
Radiology consultant and clinical director Dr Sharon Brown said: “The whole radiology team is so excited about the arrival of the CT Scan Unit. The space is better than we could have imagined, making it a great environment for patients to visit and staff to work in. It is a fantastic boost to our diagnostic capacity, helping us provide our patients with the very best possible care.
