Vaccine Scam Alert

We are aware some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the covid vaccine.  In some cases people are asked to press a number on their keypad or send a text message to confirm they would like the vaccine.  Doing so is likey to result in a charge to the phone bill.  In other cases callers are offered the vaccine for a fee and asked for bank details.  Please take care.

 

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.
