X-ray department hit by industrial action

NHS Borders is warning the public that there will be no direct walk in service to radiology (x-ray) on Monday, October 20, between 9am and 1pm, due to industrial action being taken by members of the Society of Radiographers.

A spokesperson for the health board said: “No inpatient services or essential examinations will be impacted by this action and all pre-booked appointments will be seen.

“We ask that the public note this interruption to service and avoid coming into the department during this time unless an appointment was sent/given to you prior to this day of action.”
