Noticeboard

 Hello, we hope all our patients are keeping well in these difficult times.  Currently the Practice is open for telephone triage calls only but should the doctor wish to see you after speaking to you he will ask you to attend the Health Centre at a specific time and alone.   Please do not come late or early - there are no waiting facilities available and you will be asked to queue outside till a member of staff collects you.

Alternatively you may be asked to submit a photograph of rash or lump or tonsillitis either when making telephone appointment or whilst speaking to the doctor.    Video consultations are also starting.

Moira, our Senior Practice Nurse has started her Chronic Disease Management Reviews by telephone and the feedback is encouraging.  Please ensure the Practice has your up-to-date contact details

 

 

 

 

 

 

X-Ray

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.
