IMPORTANT INFORMATION


All appointments are subject to cancellation or rescheduling.  All appointments will take place remotely, where possible.  If you think you may have Coronavirus, please visit the NHS 111 website, where you will be able to check your symptoms and get some information on how to self-isolate. 


If you have any other URGENT medical need, please telephone the surgery and ask for a call back from a member of the clinical team, where you will be given a telephone call or video consultation. A very small number or patients may need to be seen in the surgery.  These patients will be given special instructions.  ONLY COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.

doctor examining an x-rayX-Ray

An 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.

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.


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.


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