Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

    Diagnostic Imaging

    Radiology is the specialty which uses technology to create internal images of the body to diagnose and sometimes treat diseases. In the past, images were created by x-ray machines but today other imaging technologies such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine and mammography are used singularly or in combination for best diagnosis, treatment, planning and follow up.
