e-Consults – Important Update to Patients:

Please note that with immediate effect, the e-Consult service, for the Practice, has had to be adapted, to make it possible for us to offer on the day GP appointments.

Once the day’s e-Consult allocated slots have been used, the service will be switched off until the next working day.

This is to help us to safely manage demand and ensures that our Doctors are able to respond to your e-Consult enquiry within the correct time scale.

If you find that the e-Consult service is unavailable, please try using it again, on the next working day.

The e-Consult service is continually under review, and we thank you for your understanding of this slight change, at this time.

Nhs Digital has recently announced it is setting up a new primary care data collection service.

There is more information about this under the 'NHS Digital - GPDfPR' heading

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.
