Clinics and departments related to the Interventional Radiology Service
The Interventional Radiology (IR) Service is located on the first floor (Level 3, Variety Club Building), next to main theatres.We also perform procedures on the intensive care units and wards if patients are too sick to travel down to our department, and we perform joint procedures in the main operating theatres with other surgical teams where required.
All of our patients are looked after on the general hospital wards before and after their procedures. For more information about what to expect on the day of your procedure, you and your child may enjoy watching our short film.
Many of the studies we perform involve the use of X-rays. For some of these studies, we are legally obliged to ask girls over the age of 12 whether there is any chance they might be pregnant. This is to protect any unborn children from receiving unnecessary radiation.
There is a twice monthly Interventional Outpatient Clinic conducted on the first and third Fridays of each month. The Clinic is located on Level 1 of the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM), located next door to GOSH. Many new referrals and follow-up patients are seen in this clinic, especially (but not exclusively) those being treated for vascular anomalies.
