25.02.22 - a text was sent out by Park Practice today; we confirm this is genuine.


Following the recent announcement from the Government, we would like to advise that nothing has changed with regards to healthcare settings. Therefore, we are asking all patients to continue with the measures already in place – please wear a face covering (unless medically exempt), hand sanitize and socially distance. We also ask that patients do not come to the surgery if testing positive for Covid in order to keep all patients and staff as safe as possible. Thank you for your understanding. Park Practice

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.
