Video Consultations

The Practice is now arranging some appointments by video consultation through a system called "Near Me".  If you have been booked into a video consultation you will need to connect to the "virtual waiting room" five minutes before your appointment time.  To connect to the virtual waiting room you should use a smartphone or laptop/PC with a webcam and microphone/speakers.  You will need to use a browser to do this - it needs to be either Google Chrome or Safari.
You should click on the following link to connect:  Near Me

X-Ray

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.
