The THO South is committed to the New Norfolk Hospital radiology service. The permanent radiographer left her position at the end of last week and recruitment has been underway to find a replacement. Whilst this is not yet complete, a limited service will be provided from the RHH as staffing permits. However, it is anticipated that the full three day per week service will be resumed in 2-3 weeks.
The capital investment made in the purchase of a digital X-ray was well thought through when this decision was made, and the service will continue to be provided and is an important part of addressing the local communities needs and supporting the local GPs.
