CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To access the most up-to-date information on the Coronavirus, please click the link below:

This site is updated daily.  Please be aware the online booking system and the 24 hour booking service to enable patients to book their own appointments has temporarily been removed. This is to minimise any risk to patients and staff in coming into contact with coronavirus.  We apologise for the inconvenience but hope all our patients will understand the rationale behind it.  Both these facilities will of course be returned to normal as soon as it is felt safe to do so.  Please bear with our reception staff who will now be asking our patients when they call if they have travelled to China, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan or other South Asian countries in the past 2 weeks or within 2 weeks of getting unwell.  This is to minimise any further risk of spreading.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

BEDWELL BUILDING WORKS

Our Bedwell Site is currently undergoing some building works to update the surgery, these started on 03.12.19 and are anticipated to be completed by the end of MARCH 2020. During this period there will be a certain amount of unavoidable disruption but we are doing our best to limit this so please bear with us.

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.
