GP walk-in service and CT scan update
The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) is currently experiencing disruption to its imaging service, which will affect the GP walk-in service and existing CT scan appointments.
After careful consideration, they are now accepting urgent referrals only from Thursday 23 December, until Monday 10 January, during the times listed below:
The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow – radiology department, location B6:
Monday-Friday, 8am-12:30pm and 1:30-7:45pm
Herts and Essex Hospital in Bishop’s Stortford – radiology department
Monday-Friday 8:30am-12:30pm and 1:30-4:30pm
St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping – radiology department
At this time, it is necessary to cancel all existing routine CT examinations and reschedule.
New referrals will be added to the waiting list, however they will review and see patients in order of clinical priority, so you may experience a longer wait time.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.

We need to continue to do what we can to keep people safe from catching Covid-19. One way we can all help with this is by continuing to wear a face-covering in our practice and we are asking all patients to do that, as well as our staff. Keeping our staff safe is essential to keep operating efficiently.
We are also continuing to make sure we don’t have large numbers of patients in our waiting areas and on the premises – again this is about reducing the chance of infection when there are rising rates in the community.
The various measures we have taken, including increased use of personal protective equipment, patients wearing face masks, holding more virtual consultations, social distancing and extra premises cleans have helped protect staff, patients and visitors over the past year. Taking these steps has also enabled us to continue providing many of the non-urgent services that would otherwise have been postponed.
We want to make sure you can all be confident about accessing or visiting local healthcare services safely.
Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation with this – it makes a huge difference.
