Noticeboard

The practice is introducing a new telephone Prescription Ordering Service from 14th August 2017.

 

The NHS Prescription Ordering Centre (POC) service is an easy service for you to use to order your repeat prescription.

You will speak to a dedicated receptionist, who will be able to order your repeat prescription from your Doctor’s surgery and either send your prescription directly to your normal Chemist or have the prescription ready for you to collect from your surgery.

 

Why use this new service?

The POC service makes ordering your repeat prescriptions quicker and easier. Most surgeries do not accept repeat medicines requests over the phone and this new service will enable you to do this.

The surgery has experienced a significant intrusion of its phone lines.

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.
