Booking an x-ray at a Hospital in East Kent🏥

The X-ray referral form that you have received from your doctor needs to be brought with you when you attend for the appointment. This is vital – without it we will not be able to perform your x-ray.

  1. You are pregnant

  2. You require the use of a hoist

  3. Your referral is for one of the following: Scoliogram; Skull; TMJ; Sinus; Nasal Bones; Facial Bones; Orbits; Coccyx; Mastoids; Sterno-clavicular Joints; Sternum; Ribs; or a Dental/OPG x-ray

  4. You have fallen and your Doctor suspects a broken neck, back or hip

What to expect when I arrive at my appointment?
On arrival, please report to the reception area to book in. You will then be directed to the correct waiting area. In order to reduce the numbers of patients in the department at any time, please do not arrive for your appointment more than 10 minutes beforehand.

Dependent on the examination, you may be asked to change into a hospital gown prior to your examination. When it is your turn, you will be called into the x-ray room by the radiographer.

Following the examination, the report from the x-rays will be sent directly to your doctor. This will usually be within 7-10 days. Please contact your doctor if you have not received your results after this time.

What if I need to change my appointment?
Within the confirmation text message and email that you will receive as part of the booking confirmation, there is the facility to reschedule or cancel your appointment. If you are unable to attend your appointment, please cancel or reschedule as soon as possible to allow the appointment to be available to other patients.
