CORONAVIRUS

Due to the lockdown, our door is closed and you can only be invited for an appointment by GP or nurse after being screened by telephone triage first.

STAY AT HOME

Everyone must stay at home to help to the spread of coronavirus. Failure to do so puts lives at risk unnecessarily.
You can only go out for the following reasons:

  • shopping for necessities (for example for food or medicine) as infrequently as possible
  • one form of exercise per day (i.e. run, walk or cycle) alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need (including to donate blood) avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling for work purposes only if you cannot work from home


You must still maintain a distance of 2 meters apart from anyone outside of household, and keep time spent outside to a minimum.

DO NOT GO TO YOUR GP SURGERY, HOSPITAL OR PHARMACY IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS.

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 specialising in using imaging technology, such as x-ray 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.
