Covid-19 Vaccinations

We are working hard to deliver the vaccine as quickly as possible.  We are vaccinating according to the priority groups outlined by the government and clinic dates are set once we have a confirmed delivery date of the vaccine.  At present, we are only getting 2 or 3 days advance notice of a delivery.  We will contact you when it's the right time for you.  Please DO NOT contact the surgery asking about appointments as these calls are blocking the phone lines.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

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.
