In 2016 we have been very lucky to have had major investment in the department including the following equipment , a digital mammography unit with tomosynthesis, a dedicated breast ultrasound room including a new breast US machine. A dedicated state of the art 5 bedded Radiology Day Case Recovery and a new image intensifier for theatres. In October we will also have a 3rd CT scanner based in the Emergency Department Resusitation area. This investment also included the recruitment of new Consultant Radiologists, an increase in the number of radiographers and nursing staff. Plans are also in place to introduce an equipment replacement programme and the ISAS accreditation scheme for the future.

Opportunities for CPD are well supported and all radiographers are also expected to contribute to the training of our students from Portsmouth University.
The Trust is at an excellent period of its history. We are one of 5 acute trusts in the country to be involved in the Virginia Mason Institute of Excellence, a ground-breaking scheme to transform patient care. This is a pilot scheme put in place by the Department of Health to deliver transformational care across the NHS. This is an exciting time to join an organization that we are extremely proud of.
