Drop-In Chest X-Rays – New Arrangements

By Published December 11, 2017

THE drop-in chest X-ray service is now no longer available at the One Life Centre in Middlesbrough.

The timings at the other existing venues have been extended to offer a seven-day drop-in service:

 

The James Cook University Hospital

Marton Road, Middlesbrough, TS4 3BW

Monday to Friday

9am – 5pm

 

Redcar Primary Care Hospital

West Dyke Road, Redcar, TS10 4NW

Saturday and Sunday

11am – 3pm

 

The service is available to smokers aged over 50 who are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Lasting cough
  • Lasting chest pain
  • Coughing up blood

No appointment is needed – simply attend the X-ray department and those fitting the criteria will be seen.

Anyone who is experiencing any of these symptoms but is outside the eligibility criteria for the drop-in service is advised to make an appointment to see their GP.
