Medical Photography

The Medical Photography Department creates photographic and video records patients’ medical conditions for documentation and monitoring purposes.

There is a department on both QMC and City Hospital. Patients do not need an appointment during normal working hours. It is preferable to photograph patients' conditions in our patient studio. However, given the patient's condition and the demands on the service, patients may be photographed on a ward or in an outpatient’s clinic or other area of the hospital.
