Following a national upgrade of the Patient Online Access system, some patients are experiencing problems with the new app.  You will be required to log in again the 1st time you sign in to verify your identity.  There is also now a facility to log in with your email address rather than ID number.  However, the same email address cannot be shared by two different users.  

Please follow the instructions to active your account via the new app which is now a blue and red heart on a white background.  If you are still experiencing problems, please contact the surgery's IT team of Jackie and Pat to resolve the difficulties.  

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.
