Heart CT service recognised for shortening patient pathway

The cardiac CT scanning team at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust has won an award for image quality from medical technology company HeartFlow. This is due to a number of improvements made by collaborative working between the cardiology and radiology teams.

Diagnostic services lead Gail Griffiths said: “Our teams work closely together so that a patient is prepared effectively for their CT scan to produce the best possible quality images. It is testament to the work of the whole team; everything they do is focused on improving each patient’s experience in our care.”

The service has been highlighted for the way cardiac nurses refer patients into the CT service as well as the way radiographers look to constantly improve the quality of the scans produced.
