Noticeboard

Following the Government's announcement that the wearing of face masks in shops will be compulsory from Friday 24th July, we are receiving requests for letters of exemption.

The current government guidelines do not currently require an individual to provide evidence of exemption and as such, we are unable to provide letters regarding this.

If you are unable to wear a face covering, there are a number of websites from which you can print an exemption notice that politely advises others as to why you are not wearing a face covering.

 

X-Raydoctor 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.
