INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

We are commited to keeping our most vulnerable patients and staff as safe as possible, therefore we have suspended all routine face-to-face GP appointment bookings. Patients who had an appointment booked will be telephoned by a GP at the time of the original appointment. If you have not spoken to a doctor please do not attend the surgery.

In line with the latest advice, if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough you should self-isolate for a period of 7 days. There is no need to contact either the surgery or NHS111.

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.
