Radiology (X-ray and ultrasound)

COVID-19 service update: services at Blandford, Bridport, Weymouth and Sherborne are available.

Booked appointments only, or urgent appointments arranged via each hospital’s Minor Injuries Unit (Urgent Treatment Centre in Weymouth).

Swanage, Wimborne and Shaftesbury services will return soon.

We provide X-ray and ultrasound examinations in a number of our community hospitals around Dorset.

The technology provides detailed internal images of the body, which can help us diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions.

You will see a radiographer, a sonographer or a consultant radiologist, depending on your examination.

If you, or your loved one, would like to access these services, please speak to your GP or other healthcare professional. Some X-ray examinations can also be provided for urgent (but not life-threatening) injuries at our Minor Injuries Units
