We are having to make some changes to radiography services to support the rising number of patients with Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our hospitals.
This means from tomorrow, Thursday 14 January, we need to amend GP access to plain radiography at Colchester and Clacton hospitals.
With the exception of chest x-rays and investigations querying bone trauma, we are unable to take referrals for plain x-rays at this time.
We will consider other urgent requests for Colchester and Clacton hospitals on a case by case basis, but these must be sent via email to Chu-ftr.RadiologyRequests@nhs.net before we can offer an appointment.
Harwich Hospital will not be offering an x-ray service until Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions are lifted.
We will keep you updated and will return to a full service as safely and as quickly as possible.
This message supersedes any previous communications sent by the ESNEFT Radiology department.
