On the 16th June I put a post on regarding X-Rays, my husband had just been referred to the hospital by his doctor, she said the radiologist might not allow them ,I was amazed as I thought the doctors word was law, but.....husband was sent a letter and arrived at hospital yesterday, to be told they were only going to do his hip only as the back had been done 4 years previously and they did not consider doing this again. This is a new thing apparently , started just recently and there is a lot of controversy about this. This new group is called a radiology triage, and they can over ide your doctor and it is up to them what happens, all part of the NHS cuts.
