Countess of Chester Radiology 1 - Paul Kelly

We have recently undergone a total refurbishment project within Radiology at the Countess of Chester Hospital.  During this process business continuity has been paramount as Radiology provides a 24 hour service to accident & emergency and inpatients.

Paul Kelly, Project Manager, and his team from Read have been excellent to work with throughout the programme.  They have shown real sensitivity to the nature of the work within a busy NHS environment and liaised with myself and other staff members consistently throughout the project.

They have listened to all staff requests in a professional and understanding manner and ensured the disturbance to the working environment has been minimal.  Staff at all grades have commented on their ability to work with the clinical team so the service we provide will not be compromised in any way.

During the work there was an infection control inspection and the radiology directorate actually scored higher than last year.

We have been praised at executive level for being able to continue with all the clinical work throughout and ensure our patients have not had any detriment to the service they  have received.
