Medical Imaging

Bringing world class radiology to our local communities

Did you know you are able to have a range of imaging procedures, including x-rays, at some of our local hospitals? We also bulk bill so there is no cost to you or your family for any Medicare-funded service.

Western NSW Imaging is part of the Western NSW Local Health District, providing services to both patients in hospital and services to our communities. We have x-ray departments in 28 facilities across the district, providing health care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to people in hospital, and to the general public during business hours.

 

What imaging procedures (including x-rays) can I have at my local hospital?

There are a variety of different services available which varies from hospital to hospital. Some hospitals offer x-rays only, while other facilities may also offer ultrasounds, MRIs or a range of other medical imaging procedures.

Please refer to the list below to find your local health facility and find out what medical imaging services are available near you.

 

Can my doctor provide me with a referral to have my procedure (including x-rays) at my local hospital?

Yes! Your doctor can provide you with a referral to have your x-ray or medical imaging procedure at your local hospital. Simply ask your doctor to fill out the Western NSW Imaging Form.

 

My doctor has given me a referral form to another service provider – can I still go to my local hospital to have my x-ray or procedure?

Yes, you may choose to go to any service provider you wish to have your x-ray or procedure. Your doctor will provide you with a referral form to a service provider of their choice, however it is up to you where you go to have your x-ray.

 

Do I need to be a patient in hospital to access x-ray and other medical imaging procedures at my local hospital?

No. You do not need to be a patient in hospital to access any of our medical imaging services at our 28 health facilities. Both patients in and out of hospital can access our services, with access to these services available to patients in hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and services available to people who are not patients during business hours.


Will my local hospital be able to link in with other specialist services in our area and in Sydney?

Our imaging services are state-of- the-art and fully digital and networked, so your reports are sent to your referring doctor in a speedy manner. Your doctor also has access to support from specialist doctors who can view your x-rays across Western NSW hospitals or in Sydney. Our doctors are highly specialised radiologists, some who live locally and others who also work in larger Sydney hospitals.

Every time you chose to have your examination at a local hospital, you are contributing to improving the services in your local area. Help us build a better health care service in your community by choosing to have your x-ray at a local hospital.


How can I find out more information about my examination?

For further information about the examination your doctor has requested you to have, contact your local medical imaging department or visit Inside Radiology.
