Reminder: Changes in Whipps Cross x-ray service

Renovations to improve the GP x-ray department at Whipps Cross Hospital will commence on Monday 7 November and continue through to the end of March 2023.

During this period, the service will remain open but with reduced capacity. This means that any patients referred by their GP for an x-ray can be seen via appointment only and there will be no walk-in service available.

Walk-in services for GP x-ray referrals remain open at all other hospitals at Barts Health. Any patient wishing to be seen via a walk-in service, which may result in having their x-rays faster, can attend any of the other sites as follow:

  • Newham General Hospital (Monday – Friday 09:00 – 17:00) Tel: 0207 480 4601
  • Royal London Hospital (Monday – Friday 09:00 – 16:00) Tel: 0203 594 0101
  • Mile End Hospital (Monday – Friday 09:00 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 16:00) Tel: 0203 594 4809
  • St. Bartholomew’s Hospital (Monday – Friday 09:00 – 16:00) Tel: 0207 377 7000
