Tea and coffee and snacks will be provided.
Feel free to drop in any time between 2pm and 3:30pm. If the time isn't convenient then ask at reception any day that week for our new printed resource pack for carers.

Date: Wednesday 14th March 2018
Time: 2pm - 3:30pm
Venue: Elm Lodge Surgery


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.
