East Surrey Hospital is a regional trauma unit and provides nearly 700 beds for its local catchment areas. Until recently Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust had no digital radiography facilities, but the project team had a clear idea of what it needed.
“We entered the DR transition project with less knowledge and experience than many other organisations. We did, however, have a clear vision of what the outcomes would look like; we just needed to find a trusted partner to work with,” explained operations manager Diane Mcfeeters. “We have now successfully concluded the project and I am confident to supply positive endorsements about the Fujifilm products and service we experienced.
“Our specification was to replace a 20-year-old x-ray room with a product that was robust, provided superior image quality, delivered low dose and was easy to use,” said Mcfeeters. “We also needed a room that would handle a large amount of trolley work, 24 hours a day, and not deteriorate in condition or have downtime. The Fujifilm equipment has delivered on all our requirements.
