East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has chosen to install the ceiling-suspended VALORY™ digital radiography (DR) room at the Community Diagnostic Centre, located in the Rossendale Primary Health Care Centre, in Rossendale, UK. The Trust is the first healthcare organisation in the UK to install the VALORY™ room. VALORY™ was selected based on its flexibility to meet the Centre’s needs for a semi-automated X-ray room. With functionality going far beyond the usual ‘basics’, VALORY™ combines simplicity, ease of use and cost-effectiveness, with high image quality and low radiation dose.
“The new VALORY™ DR room will be pivotal in helping us provide consistent, personal and effective care for our communities. By installing it at our Community Diagnostic Centre, co-located with a minor injuries unit in Rossendale, we aim to help reduce attendances at our main sites, creating capacity whilst being more convenient for our patients,” says Jack Smith – Director, LSC Diagnostics Collaborative.
“We are delighted that East Lancashire Trust chose to install our VALORY™, a first in the UK, to help them deliver convenient, quality care to all patients. This semi-automated, ceiling-mounted X-ray room offers simplicity and ease of use that will enable the Rossendale Community Health Hub to take care of all imaging requirements efficiently and cost-effectively,” explains Martin Tew, Area Sales Director Europe North of Agfa Radiology Solutions.
