Radiology team one of the best

Patients across Calderdale are receiving some of the best radiology and hospital-imaging treatments in the country.

The radiology departments at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust have become the fourth NHS facility to be given national accreditation.

The departments, who work across both hospital sites as well as out in the community, deliver X-ray, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT, MRI as well as other medical imaging services. After a two-day inspection, they were given the imaging services accreditation.

Clinical director and consultant radiologist Dr Sarah Gurney said: “Achievement of the ISAS accreditation confirms that we deliver a high standard of service to our patients and we are delighted to have gained the accreditation.

“It acts as motivation for us to continually improve the services we offer.

“We aim to continue to improve to ensure patients receive the best care possible.”
