Noticeboard

Ordering your prescription by email at - prescriptions.amp@nhs.net The practice recognises that many patients that do not have an online access account are concerned about ordering their prescription. We have therefore set up an dedicated email account to receive prescription requests. Requests can be accepted directly from the patient or on behalf of the patient from a relative, friend or carer if appropriate. All requests should include full patient details; Name, Address, Date of birth and all items required (please note we will be unable to respond to requests which detail 'everything'. Items must be named. We will process requests via email within the same 48 hour time frame as long as staffing numbers at the practice allow. We are unable to process requests early and ask that patients do not request for the purposes of stock piling. Please include the name of the pharmacy you would like your prescription sending to and we will arrange for it to be forwarded directly to them.

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.
