SAMI Women’s and Children’s Hospital Proposed MRI and 24/7 Changes

17 October 2017

SA Medical Imaging have proposed imaging service changes for the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. The changes expand on General X-Ray and MRI modalities in response to increased demand in these areas and to provide a more expedient service.

Four additional radiographers would be needed to cover the introduction of an 11pm to 7am General X-Ray shift and an additional afternoon shift 7 days per week.

SAMI proposes to extend the MRI hours of operation by introducing a second MRI shift Monday to Friday.
