The local Mayor, Christine Brough, declared open two refurbished x-ray rooms at Stamford Hospital, part of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Both rooms are equipped with Philips Bucky Diagnost TH systems.
Superintendent radiographer Alison Telfer said: “This is a big boost for the hospital and its patients. Not only has privacy and dignity been significantly enhanced, but patients now find it easier to get on the table. The time it takes to x-ray patients is significantly reduced as we can get patients into position faster. ”
