X-Rays

The multi-displinary team performs over 350,000 examinations a year at University Hospital in Coventry, the Hospital of St Cross in Rugby and the City of Coventry Health Centre.

The department is committed to the provision of state of the art imaging technologies and constantly evolving techniques. This enables us to offer a high quality level of patient service and care.

Your doctor will be able to advise you on whether you will need an appointment or not. If you need to prepare in some way before you come for your test a leaflet will be sent to you along with your appointment letter. Please read this leaflet carefully.
