THANK YOU 

We would like to say Thank You for your patience over this busy Flu Season booking period.

As expected, our inbound calls and visitors into the practice have increased considerably since releasing our popular flu clinic dates. This means that some patients may be experiencing longer than normal waiting times to speak to a member of our reception team.

Please, where possible, book your flu vaccinations online or alternatively should you need to telephone or come in to make your appointment, we would ask that you do this after 10;30.

If you do not have online booking, please click on the following link to access the consent form which you need to complete and return to the surgery.

** Did you know that you can now also access your medical records online - please speak to our reception team for more information **

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.
