Noticeboard

Sadly Dr Patel has had to leave the surgery due to relocation. We wish him well for the future. We have a new doctor starting next week, Dr Soumyo Gorai.

WE HAVE OUR USUAL WALK IN FLU VACCINATION CLINIC ON SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER BETWEEN 8-12:30. ALL THOSE WHO ARE ELIGIBLE ARE WELCOME AND WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD LET ANY FAMILY MEMBERS KNOW. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU THEN.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE FLU CLINICS AT THE SURGERY SO PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSES.

From September the surgery will be closed for lunchtime between 12:30 and 13:30 for staff training. The phone lines will be open for emergency calls only during this time with normal service resuming at 13:30.

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.
