Noticeboard

 Computers offline Tuesday 22nd - Wednesday 23rd June

Our computer systems are being replaced and upgraded on Tuesday and Wednesday 22nd and 23rd June.  This is essential as the computers we are using are unreliable and slow.  We will have little or no access to medical records on these days and we will have fewer clinical staff on site due to social distancing rules.

As a result, we will only be able to deal with medical emergencies.  We will not be able to issue acute or repeat prescriptions on those days, so please consider ordering early if you think you will run out.

We have been very busy recently, and we understand that this is a further frustation.  We thank you for your patience.

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE SURGERY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OR TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION.  PLEASE GO HOME AND TELEPHONE RECEPTION.

 

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
