We have had to make some changes in one of our outpatient rooms at Ipswich Hospital to support the rising number of patients with COVID-19 in our hospitals. This means, with immediate effect, we need to amend GP access to plain radiography at Ipswich Hospital.
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 are able to consider other urgent requests on a case by case basis, but these will all need to be discussed with the department before we are able to offer an appointment. The process for arranging an appointment for these examinations remains the same and will continue to be on an appointment only basis.
We will keep you updated and will return to a full service as safely and as quickly as possible.
