PARKING

It is with regret that patients will no longer be able to park on Elgar House car park. We have had to make this difficult decision as there have been instances where doctors have not been able to exit the car park in emergencies putting patient's health at risk, There has also been damage to staff cars and sadly staff have received verbal abuse.

Within the next few weeks Parking Eye, a member of the British Parking Association will be issuing fines for unauthorised vehicles parked.

THIS WILL ALSO APPLY WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED, i.e. AT THE WEEKEND AND BANK HOLIDAYS.

Further to our recent patient survey, we have added a new phone line for prescription queries, which we hope will free up our main lines for patients who want to book appointments.  The new number is 01527 63770.

 

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 website below.
