Mike Gapes MP Opens New CT Scanner at King George Hospital 

“The Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) officially revealed the scanner which will be used by patients around east London, at Goodmayes’ King George Hospital on Friday, April 5, with help from Ilford South MP Mike Gapes.

The new scanner uses a reduced dose of radiation, without impacting the quality of images.

It also works faster than the trust’s previous model, which allows radiology staff to scan patients more quickly.

As this means more people can be scanned in less time, anxious patients will get their tests completed faster, in many cases allowing them to start their treatment earlier.”
