The Central Mass X-Ray Centre at the Western Hospital,
Seagrave Road, Fulham, S.W.6. is open without appointment,
every Wednesday between 2.00 p.m. and 4 p.m., and from 5.00 p.m.
to 7 p.m.
It was not possible to have a Mass X-Ray Centre functioning
at the Chenil Galleries, King's Road, Chelsea, during the past year.
A mobile unit made visits to three undertakings in the Borough
and made its annual visit to the Chelsea Polytechnic. On the above
occasions 1,782 examinees presented themselves.
Further, male employees of one firm in Chelsea, and over
two hundred men drawn from offices and work places in this area
co-operated in a special service for persons over 45 years of
age, when volunteers are X-Rayed six-monthly in a pilot research
survey by which an attempt is made to diagnose lung cancer in its
early stages.
It is hoped to repeat these visits during 1961, and to arrange
the attendance of Mobile Units in various parts of the Borough.
