Information for GPs
GPs can refer patients direct to the X-ray department. Results are normally sent back to GPs electronically within four days, although many are sent within 48 hours.
To refer a patient for X-ray, GPs fill out a patient request form and the patient can either book an appointment, or go direct to their nearest hospital and wait to be seen.
