NHS rolls out radiology kit

The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, a special health authority of the National Health Service in England, has sent a new radiology kit to help trusts improve booking processes and reduce waiting times.

Transforming your Radiology Services Kit: Focus on Booking Processes, intends to reduce the long waiting times often caused by a bottleneck in patient pathways as part of diagnostic imaging exams, according to the institute.

Staff can review and assess booking processes by identifying areas for development, including where technological solutions could be used to improve the system, using the kit.

Resource materials were developed following 12 months of research and pilots by the NHS Institute’s Delivering Quality and Value team, according to NHS.
