Noticeboard

January 2020  

We now have an appointment checking in touch screen in the waiting area of reception. This will save patients having to wait at reception to check in.

If you need assistance to be shown how to use it please ask a member of staff. 

 

Missed Appointments -If you are unable to attend your appointment please inform the surgery so we are able to offer these to other patients.  In November there were 53 Doctor and 70 Nurse appointments that were unattended.

Prescription forms (ie not medication) are now collected from the Enquiries Desk.  Medication is collected from the Dispensary.

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.
