Scarborough General Hospital – Mammography Clinic
The Radiology Department at Scarborough Hospital provides a wide range of diagnostic imaging services, including CT Scanning, DEXA Bone Density Scanning, Mammography, MRI Scanning, Radioisotope Scanning, Ultrasound Scanning, and X-ray. The department provides both inpatient and outpatient services, with a total of around 110,000 patient attendances each year.
The department was in need of improved facilities to support the Mammography and Breast Care Clinic, and GSSArchitecture were appointed as the Lead Consultant to design and administer the project. This included internal space remodelling and alterations to improve patient flows, patient dignity and overall level of service. In addition, a small single storey extension was built to provide much needed office accommodation for consultants and staff.
To enable the Radiology Department to continue functioning during the works, the project was split into five consecutive phases, with each phase screened from ongoing hospital operations. Upon completion, each phase was handed over to the hospital before the next phase commenced, and so on until final completion.
