Return to a walk-in service for UCLH X-ray GP Direct Access

As of Tuesday 1st February the X-ray GP Direct Access service for patients will return to a fully walk in service. Due to the current Covid situation, this will be reviewed every 2 weeks.

Request forms should be given to the patient to bring with them when they attend for their X-ray. The form must be signed with a wet signature, or state the GPs name AND GMC number. Request forms continue to have a 3 month expiration date.

Opening times for X-ray, Lower Ground Floor, UCH, 235 Euston Road for GP patients are as follows:

Ø  Mon – Fri  08:30 – 17:30

Ø  Less busy times for patients are Tuesdays and Thursdays  08:30- 17:30

Please inform your patients, they may now attend for their X-ray without the need for an appointment, but please be aware they may have to wait to be seen on their arrival if the department is busy.

For those patients that we have already received a referral for, a staff member will attempt to contact the patient and inform them to walk in for their X-ray. If a patient cannot be contacted, a letter will be sent to their address.

So from Feb UCLH imaging services will be:

Ø  CT, MRI, ultrasound and DEXA services at UCLH remain by appointment.

Ø  X ray walk-ins open Mon-Fri 8:30am-17:30

The patient must bring the request form with them when they attend. It must be signed with a wet signature, or state the GPs name AND GMC number.
