Prescription Collection   As from Monday 22nd January, prescriptions will only be able to be collected from the surgery after 10am until 6pm. This is to reduce patient waiting time. We have also introduced a designated reception area for collection of prescriptions which is sign posted. Thank you

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.

X RAY RESULTS CAN TAKE A MINIMUM OF TWO WORKING WEEKS. Currently this is longer and can be up to 3 weeks. The surgery will contact patients regarding x ray results if there is further action required. 

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