Community Radiology (X-ray)

In addition to the radiology services at The James Cook University Hospital and Friarage Hospital Northallerton, we also provide various services at the following hospitals:

The community team has 15 staff – seven senior radiographers, seven radiology assistants and a community manager.PACS system

The radiology service receives x-ray referrals for all plain imaging from the local GPs, hospital consultants and nurse practitioners. Patients are often x-rayed on arrival or a timely appointment will be made based on the patients clinical need .

An Ultrasound scan service is available at the One Life Centre, Linthorpe Road Middlesbrough and Redcar Primary Care Hospital which is led by radiology staff from The James Cook University Hospital. The team is committed to providing an efficient and friendly service in a safe and clean environment.

Linked to the trust network by the filmless radiology Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS), images taken at the four community sites can be viewed by radiologists at The James Cook University Hospital for a timely diagnosis. Images are also available to the hospital wards and department by using a normal PC via a web browser.

The team welcomes patients from all areas of South Tees who can choose where they would like to have their x-ray taken at a time convenient to their needs. This patient friendly system has the advantage for patients as they are directly involved in choosing where and when their examination will be performed.

Patients referred for x-ray who would like to attend one of the community hospitals will need an x-ray referral from their GP or consultant. They can then decide which location is preferable and contact the hospital direct to make an appointment at a suitable time and date. The departments close over the lunch time period.
