Please bring any relevant information and/or previous films with you to your examination. Please follow any preparation that is required before your examination.
General x-rays require no preparation and are available on a walk-in basis (no bookings required).
Patients can come to the Medical Imaging department at the following days/times for their x-ray:
- Monday: 9.30am to 4pm
- Tuesday and Friday: 8:30am to 4pm
- Wednesday and Thursday: 9.30am to 4pm
Patients having a general x-ray must have a signed referral from their General Practitioner (GP), to be presented on arrival to the department.
If in doubt please contact the Medical Imaging department during the hours specified above, before arriving in the department.
All other procedures require an appointment, and must be referred by a GP or a Private Specialist. The examination request form is posted in and when received, will be prioritised and an appointment made. The patient will be contacted by mail or phone of their proposed appointment date and time.
Medical Imaging staff are on call for urgent services to the Wards and Emergency Department.
Sometimes there are patients with greater medical urgency. This may mean your appointment is postponed and will be rebooked. We will contact you should this occur.
Results for x-rays and/or scans are sent to the doctor requesting the examination and to your GP or other copies as indicated on the referral form.
Reports are also available to MidCentral Health clinicians on RISWeb, PACS and the internal Éclair website.
