Agfa announces that the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, in North West England, UK, has implemented Agfa’s DR Retrofit direct radiography (DR) solutions at three of its sites. For the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, the upgrade has resulted in faster, smoother patient throughput, as well as enhanced workflow and better image quality. At the Thomas Linacre Clinic, patient throughput has jumped from 80 patients a day to 120 patients a day.
“As part of our radiology realignment and modernization, Agfa’s DR Retrofit helps us provide top-level care, in a timely way, to our patients,” comments Stephen Ackers, Superintendent Radiographer, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust. “With the DR Retrofit, we were able to replace about 80% of our CR equipment. Alongside the technical benefits of the upgrade, ambient noise has been reduced and space freed up enabling us to repurpose spaces for further benefit to our patients and department.”
“We are very pleased to be supporting the care goals of Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, and proud to have been chosen as its Imaging Partner,” comments Martin Tew, Imaging Sales Director and Service Manager UK & Eire. “It is very much a partnership approach and we look forward to continuing this relationship in the future.”
