In addition the Clinical imaging department was recently rated as outstanding by the Care Quality commission in December 2018. The department has also been recently successful in achieving ISAS accreditation in December 2018.

The Clinical Imaging Directorate has consistently met all diagnostic and treatment targets, delivers a 7 day imaging service and 24/7 on-call diagnostic radiology services with a separate 24/7 interventional radiology on call rota.
