A second CT scanner has been installed at Scarborough Hospital, which will greatly increase capacity and reduce waits for patients both in and out of hospital.  The scanner was purchased following an application by York and Scarborough Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for national funding.

The extra capacity increases the resilience of the service at Scarborough Hospital, which means the hospital can improve access to CT for patients on the East Coast.

Finance Director, Andrew Bertram, said: “We are delighted to have secured this funding for the new scanner.  It has been a long-standing aspiration of the Trust to implement a second CT scanner at Scarborough, and it has now been realised.

“This will allow more patients to access timely CT imaging and will strengthen the resilience of our service out of hours for emergency patients.  Having back up facilities in permanent situ provides a much better service to patients.  It will also hugely complement the new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre which is due to open next year.”
