Message from The Princess Alexandra Hospital  Posted 24/12/2021

As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all patients are required to have carried out a quick COVID-19 test (lateral flow test) before attending the hospital. You must provide evidence of a negative result on arrival via the NHS App if you have a smartphone, or alternatively, an email or photograph of the negative result.”


Disruption to Radiology (X-ray/CT scan) service Posted on 23/12/21

GP walk-in service and CT scan update

The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) is currently experiencing disruption to its imaging service, which will affect the GP walk-in service and existing CT scan appointments.

After careful consideration, they are now accepting urgent referrals only from Thursday 23 December, until Monday 10 January, during the times listed below:

The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow – radiology department, location B6: Monday-Friday, 8am-12:30pm and 1:30-7:45pm

Herts and Essex Hospital in Bishop’s Stortford – radiology department: Monday-Friday 8:30am-12:30pm and 1:30-4:30pm

St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping – radiology department: Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm

At this time, it is necessary to cancel all existing routine CT examinations and reschedule. 

New referrals will be added to the waiting list, however they will review and see patients in order of clinical priority, so you may experience a longer wait time.

 

Test Results
