COVID 19 NOTICE – WE ARE OPEN!


Please note that the surgery is open, and we are here for you. It is important that you seek medical advice for any health related issues if you have worrying symptoms that may require treatment and we advise that you continue to contact the surgery to enable us to assess you. The practice has put measures into place to minimise risk from Coronavirus and these will be explained to you when you call the surgery, including what to do if you require a face to face appointment. Routine childhood immunisations are being done at the surgery and if your child is due for these, please make an appointment.  Further information about COVID can be found on our dedicated menu page "COVID 19"

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.

It is your responsibility to contact the surgery for results of your x-ray, scan or ultrasound. The surgery will contact you if the result requires further action. This may be by letter or a phone call, asking you to make an appointment or telephone consultation.

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