Clinical imaging

What we do

We provide an extensive array of radiology services to assist in the diagnosis of disease and trauma. Our departments at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital carry out thousands of examinations each year, seeing patients from A&E, urgent care, outpatient clinics, inpatient hospital wards and GPs. We use the latest equipment and a variety of modern technologies and techniques to help us provide the best quality diagnostic services for our patients.

The Imaging service at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital is accredited by the Quality Standard for Imaging (QSI) under UKAS.

Opening times

Our core opening hours are Mon–Fri, 8am–8pm, but you may have an appointment booked outside these hours.

If your GP has requested that you have an X-ray, there is a walk-in service (no need to book ahead) Mon–Fri, 8:30am–4:30pm. As this is a walk-in service, there may be a small wait to be seen.

If your dentist has referred you for an orthopantomogram (OPG), please book in at the main clinical imaging unit first.

Please note: Not all imaging procedures are performed in clinical imaging—you will be advised where to go when you are referred.

Our team

Clinical imaging is part of the clinical support services at the Trust. Each site is led by a clinical director and a general manager for clinical imaging and medical photography, and locally run by a service lead consultant and head of clinical imaging. Our teams are supported by a wider group of radiologists, radiographers, sonographers, mamographers, healthcare assistants and administration teams.
