Assistant practitioner Kajal Thakrar, radiology department assistant Harjeet Kajall and senior 1 plain film radiographer Angela Langton with Asteral’s Marianne Phillips by a Philips Multi Diagnost Eleva FD
Managed equipment services company Asteral has completed the installation of seven new x-ray rooms at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in just four months.
In an unusual move, all of the rooms feature equipment from a single provider. Philips has supplied a range of digital, analogue and interventional technology. Asteral’s general manager at Leicester Darren Woolley explained: “We don’t have any obligations to provide a whole suite of equipment from a single provider. However, as we worked with UHL it became clear that Philips was the right choice.”
Leicester Royal has a Multi Diagnost Eleva FD, a Digital Diagnost TH and a Digital Diagnost VM with TH table as well as three Bucky Diagnost CS4s. A further interventional x-ray room has been installed at the Glenfield Hospital featuring a second Multi Diagnost Eleva FD.
