Noticeboard

Since our transition to our new phone system we are aware there is ongoing problems and patients calls are ringing out.  The engineers have advised that the volume of calls we receive between 8.30 and 9.00 is causing congestion on the lines but they are working to find a solution to this problem.  We offer an online appointment booking system - please ask at 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.
