Everlight Radiology’s offer of support to the NHS in response to COVID-19

During these challenging times, when hospitals are under immense pressures, Everlight is committed to supporting the NHS. We are proposing solutions that will ensure uninterrupted contingency for the provision of Diagnostic Imaging reporting, nationwide during the COVID-19 crisis.

Firstly, we are already working with Radiology Departments to enable Everlight Radiologists who work with our existing NHS clients to use their Everlight workstations during NHS contracted time to undertake home reporting for their NHS organisation. This is helping Trusts keep capacity in the system as a whole and enable ongoing routine reporting. We are pleased to extend this offer to all Trusts including those we do not currently work with.

But there is more that we can do together. Now, more than ever, the pooling of radiology resources will provide the NHS the best possible opportunity of maintaining service continuity, with radiologists across the nation operating in safe and secure environments. Pooling in this way will allow radiologists, regardless of location or employer, to gather as a collective and provide their services to all institutions, giving Trusts unfettered access to the highest concentration of qualified specialists. We want to enable the NHS to have universal access to this system as part of its national healthcare continuity planning.

By working together as one team, irrespective of public or private, we can unify against this virus and significantly enhance the resilience of the NHS.
