Important message for those patients who use SystmOnline - be aware of an official looking email asking you to click a link to log in because 'we are changing the system and need to update'.  SystmOnline has NOT sent emails and this is a scam.  Please contact the surgery if your online access is affected. Thank you.

We are looking for people to join our Patient Representative Committee, the group meets 4 times a year.  Please leave your details with reception if you are interested and the Practice Manager will be in contact.

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.
