On the 2nd March we had a full house at our regular coffee morning. We welcomed Robin from The Air Ambulance who came to tell us about the fantastic service they give. Some of us were surprised to learn that this is supported by the public raising funds to keep it air bourne. Quite a few people made a donation to their collection box and bought some of the merchandise Robin had brought along. The group then handed over a cheque for £100.00 on behalf of the coffee morning regulars and the practice. It was a lovely morning and everyone enjoyed it.

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.
