Welcome to PACSnet!

** IMPORTANT - Please read **

The PACSnet evaluation centre at St George's Hospital closed in January 2009, following the withdrawal of its funding from the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency Centre for Evidence-based Purchasing (NHS PASA CEP).

NHS PASA CEP itself was dissolved in March 2010. The Department of Health has commissioned a CEP archive website to house the many reports commissioned by the evaluation service over the years, in all areas of medical technology - including MRI, CT, X-Ray and ultrasound imaging as well as PACS.

The PACSnet site is now maintained on a voluntary basis by former staff and may not be updated significantly or regularly. Please bear in mind that much of the information on this site is now likely to be out of date. We are still happy to receive your enquiries and comments via email to query@pacsnet.org.uk

The site was last updated in March 2011
