Rochester and Elmore District Health Service has increased its radiology services from two to four days a week.ELAINE COONEY April 24, 2014 3:10am
Sonographer Eileen Brettig is taking in large numbers of patients since Rochester and Elmore District Health Service extended its service hours.
Rochester and district residents can now use radiology services from Monday to Thursday and ultrasound on Monday and Wednesday.
Acting chief executive Anne McEvoy said the increase was due to feedback from district doctors.
‘‘Radiology services are a key diagnostic tool for our GPs,’’ she said.
‘‘Previously when the services were only available two days a week people needed to travel out of town and have an X-ray or ultrasound.’’
She said March saw 105 X-rays carried out at the service and since the extended days on March 31 it has seen 58 X-rays and 31 ultrasounds.
Mrs McEvoy said if the demand continued to increase the health service would try to extend the service to five days.
