The first patient to be treated in the new x-ray room at Goole and District Hospital has declared the facilities are “top class.” Siemens Healthineers Ysio Max DR general x-ray has been installed and one of two x-ray rooms fully refurbished, following a £330,000 injection of capital funding. Around 650 patients will be using the new x-ray room every month.
Building work started in February and the first patient, Katie Frith from Howden, underwent a chest x-ray. Formerly a nurse, Frith spent some of her time training at the hospital. She said: “Having been in for an x-ray before I can see the facilities are much improved and this is great news for Goole. I found the environment to be airy and light and a friendly space that really puts you at ease as a patient.”
