**** NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM ****

From Thursday 13th September our new telephone system will be live. We hope that this will improve patient experience when making appointments, obtaining results etc. The new system will allow patients to pick from options such as Appointments & Prescription queries enabling telephone waiting times to be shorter. Patients will also be aware of what position in the queue they are.

Our telephone number will remain the same.

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.
