Noticeboard

Covid Vaccination Clinics have been running since December 2020.We have now offered vaccinations to all patients in groups 1 - 9 and have now started to book second vaccinations. There are still a number of patients who have not responded to our invitations but we can still arrange vaccinations and would encourage anyone who did not respond initially to contact the practice so that an appointment can be arranged.

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayIf you are asked to have an X-Ray you will be given a form to attend the X-Ray department at Cannock Chase Hospital. The hospital offer a walk in service Monday to Friday.

The result of your X-Ray will be returned to the practice via the courier postal service usually within ten to fourteen days.

An 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.
