Digital x-rays for all hospitals

6th June 2007

Digital x-rays will be available across the whole of the UK by the end of next year, according to the Department of Health.

At present, 92 trusts and 250 hospitals have installed digital x-ray technology as part of the National Programme for IT. Health secretary Patricia Hewitt said the new system is helping doctors treat patients faster and better and provide NHS users with a "first class 21st century service."

The DH says that once all hospitals have digital x-ray technology, it will save the NHS more than £6m in the first year.
