    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The COVID-19 pandemic is generating great change and challenge to unparalleled levels across the National Health Service, UK. With insufficient and still emerging evidence on this little known virus, recommendations and guidance are changing continually and still evolving. The authors outline some of the planning through the initial stages of the pandemic within a clinical radiology ultrasound service at one UK tertiary centre. Patient triaging, infection control, equipment, staff mental wellbeing, ongoing training and recovery are all subjects of focus. By sharing our experience and strategies, we anticipate that other similar departments may benefit.
