We provide scientific support services covering diagnostic and interventional radiology, radiation protection (for both ionising and non-ionising radiation), ultrasound, MRI, lasers, UV treatment, nuclear medicine as well as research and development.
We also operate a dosimetry service (currently pending HSE approval) and are part of the East Sussex Radiation Monitoring Group (ESRMG).
Our radiation and imaging physicists provide essential support to the BSUH’s busy and technically demanding clinical services, ensuring good quality equipment while minimising associated risks to patients and staff.
Our activity includes:
Radiation safety X-ray surveys/QC of imaging equipment
Dosimetry and incident investigations

Research and development
In addition, we provide a scientific and technical support service to other hospital trusts, academic institutions and private organisations.
We have a national reputation for the provision of high quality personal radiation monitoring and radiation protection services, with our own processing laboratory, exclusively for personal dosimetry.
The service is currently pending approval by the Health and Safety Executive for whole body and skin dosimetry. It is approved to serve as a Coordination and Record Keeping Service for Classified Workers.
We have over 65 years’ experience in personal monitoring and is one of the largest dosimetry services in the NHS.
We provide personal radiation monitoring to hospitals and trusts across the UK. We maintain a quality management system for the dosimetry service in line with the ISO9001:2015 standard.
