We have made extra appointments available to assist with the seasonal demand. This is on top of our usual appointments and the daily sit and wait surgeries. These appointments will be available to book via the online system, by phone or in person.

Measles Alert

If you think you have measles please call ahead for advice first. If you have symptoms such as high fever, rash- sometimes around the ears, sore red eyes, cough, aching and feeling unwell it could be Measles and you will need to be placed in an area where an infection cannot be passed onto vulnerable patients. Please do not come to the surgery without phoning first.

  

X-Ray

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.
