Important message for GPs re: DXA service

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the DXA service has reopened to primary care referrals. You can refer as normal via ICE.

Due to having to incorporate social distancing, enhanced cleaning etc. the capacity of the service will be reduced for the foreseeable future.

Please consider carefully whether a scan is needed and whether a clinical decision could be made regarding management in the absence of a DXA scan.

Guidance to this effect can be found here:

Initially we expect to be running at 50% capacity due to the infection control procedures. The waiting time is about 3-4 weeks at present but will probably increase with demand.

Kind regards,
The Osteoporosis Team
RUH Bath
