X-ray

X-ray is an imaging technique to show up abnormalities in bones and certain body tissue, such as breast tissue.

An x-ray is the most common form of diagnostic examination used as it is a quick and painless method to diagnose many health conditions such as:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Early signs of disease in organs and soft tissue
  • Damage to joints
  • Chest infections

Opening times

Monday to Friday. 8:30am to 4:45pm.
For GP patients with referrals for plain film x-rays, we offer a walk-in service at Arrowe Park Hospital, Clatterbridge Hospital, St Catherine’s Hospital and Victoria Central Health Centre. No telephone appointment is needed.

If you require an x-ray outside of the hours mentioned above, please call 0151 604 7067 between 8:30am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday to arrange an appointment.

All other examinations are made by appointment only.
