Alarm Issue - We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the problems we are experiencing with our alarm system. We are working very hard to work out why the alarms are being triggered. The company has now reduced the time the alarm will sound. We have been informed that there has been various individuals on the premises when we are closed, so please could we ask if you could all be vigilant as we have experienced some vandalism recently at the surgery also. Please let us know if you witness anything. 

 

 

 

 

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.
