Staff at the Hospital of St Cross have recently taken delivery of a special new trolley for use in the X-ray department. 

Nicky Rees, Senior Radiographer at St Cross, explains more about the equipment which has been donated: “This new trolley has several significant benefits.  It is designed to accommodate x-ray facilities so that image quality isn’t compromised and we are able to x-ray nearly every part of the patient once they are in situ.

“Its range of movement and smooth hydraulics give a more comfortable experience for our inpatients and means they are only moved twice rather than four times during a visit.

“We’re very grateful to the Friends for their donation of this equipment as it greatly improves patient experience.”
