Welcome to the website of the Radiology Department, Whiston Hospital, St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
The aim of this web site is to provide information about the Radiology Department, the procedures undertaken and the staff who work with in it.
The Radiology service for St Helens and Knowsley Trust is split across the following sites

We perform over 220,000 investigations per year providing the Trust with diagnostic, interventional and therapeutic services using the latest imaging equipment and techniques.
Our specialist team provides a comprehensive range of investigations to a high standard of patient care. Our clinical staff consists of radiologists, radiographers, nurses and clinical support staff. Our dedicated administration team provides essential non-clinical support.
We are a major training centre for radiologists, radiographers, assistant practioners and sonographers.
A Picture Archive Communication System (PACS) has been implemented across the whole Trust allowing instant access to digital images and reports 24 hours a day.
