Book an X-ray at a time most convenient for you
Your GP will give you a form if you need an X-ray. If they have asked for a chest x-ray, you can simply walk in to any of our x-ray departments during our published working times with the form the GP gave you.
For all other GP requests, you will need to book an appointment and can do this at a place and time most convenient for you. To book your appointment, visit our secure Patient Portal.
We will send you an email/text reminder about your chosen appointment slot. You will also be able to amend your booking if you need to.
If you want help with booking your appointment online, a friend, carer or relative can do it for you.
You must bring your x-ray request form with you. Without the form from your GP we will be unable to perform your x-ray. We cannot accept digital request forms, so if your GP has emailed it to you, you must print it off and bring it to your appointment.
Please do not book an appointment unless you have this information and please remember to bring this with you when you attend.

What is Radiology?
Radiology is the branch of medicine where clinicians visualise the internal organs and structures, in order to diagnose illness, disease, and fractures; the images obtained form the basis of treatments and monitoring.
The radiology service in East Kent has undergone a rapid period of development - which includes extended routine opening hours, giving people the freedom and flexibility to have their diagnostic examination on a day and at a time that suits them. The roles of staff have also been developed to provide a constant first class service for our patients.
Our service covers the three main hospital sites:
Services are also provided at:
We have introduced an extension to the service provided by radiology for patients by introducing longer opening hours at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital, and the William Harvey Hospital.
You can find our opening hours in the tabs at the bottom of this page. Please do not arrive at more than 10 minutes before your appointment time.
