IN CASE OF EMERGENCY CONTACT 111 (URGENT CARE CENTRE)

OPEN SURGERY TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

 

This is a precautionary measure in relation to the Coronavirus Pandemic

 

We will now be conducting our consultations via telephone.

 

Please contact the surgery through "econsult" or call reception and ask for a telephone call back with a GP. We envisage being able to resolve many problems in this manner, however, please be assured that if the GP needs to see you face to face, they will advise you of this on the call and book you in appropriately.

 

We have made this decision as a precautionary measure to keep our patients and team members safe.

 

We appreciate your understanding, Old Forge

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.
