***IMPORTANT FLU INFORMATION***


Please note we are currently running our flu clinics.  If you are entitled to the Flu Vaccine and have received a letter please contact the surgery to make an appointment.  We are also running a Fluenz Clinic for 2-3 year olds.


Children are more likely to suffer from flu than adults. Giving flu vaccine to children helps stop them catching and spreading the infection, so it protects them and also the people around them, including those at increased risk such as elderly relatives or people with chronic health conditions.  If you have a child in this age range please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.  Primary school children will receive theirs at school.

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.
