Patients and colleagues outside of the radiology department are experiencing far fewer problems and delays following the implementation of the system. Issues such as GPs being inundated with messages in their inboxes are currently being addressed and we plan to have this rectified in the very near future. There are a still some fixes required that are having an impact within the Radiology department and we continue to work very closely with both BT and Cerner to address these as quickly as possible.
Colleagues from the CCGs came for a tour of the Radiology department this month and saw for themselves what we have done to reduce the impact on our patients as much as possible. The backlog of unreported X-Ray plain films is reducing every day and the trajectory shows the backlog should be cleared by early September, and business as usual resumed by end of September.
