Your GP practice is working differently and there are changes to how we review patients during this time.  We will not accept patients walking in and having face to face appointments unless the doctor has spoke with you on the telephone.  If you want to request your repeat medication and usually drop your request off at the practice, we will accept the request over the phone during this time. 

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult period and helping us to keep our patients and our staff safe and well.

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.
