IMPORTANT PRACTICE CHANGES


June 2018


  


We would like to welcome back Dr C Phillips from maternity leave.


 


Dr Phillips will be working 5 sessions, which for June will be usually on a Wednesday morning, all day Thursday and Friday.  You will be able to pre-book appointments from the 11th June 2018.


 


Dr James Thompson will continue to work two sessions on a Monday, alongside Dr Jurgita, who will also work other sessions over the week normally on a Tuesday and Friday.


 


Dr J Mandhar will work 5 sessions usually all day on Tuesday and Wednesday and a Friday morning.


 


Rachel Brown the Nurse Practitioner will work when available on a Thursday.


 


We will still run open surgeries each day to primarily see urgent problems.  The open surgeries will be run by the duty GP or Nurse Practitioner; both are able to deal with most acute problems and can issue prescriptions.

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.
