Noticeboard

Please note that with effect from 18 October 2018, the surgery will be moving to a new clinical system.  If you have any prescription requirements that you would normally be ordering the week up to that date, please can you order them now.

Once we are on the new system, we will be able to offer our patients the facility to book into the Dacorum Extended Access surgeries, which offer out of hours appointments weekday Mon-Fri and Sat am & pm and Sun am.  Details will be available from our Receptionists.

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-ray An 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.
