RGP Flu Campaign 2020

Many patients have contacted us to ask if we are planning to hold Flu Clinics this year, after receiving letters from their local chemist.  We can confirm we are organising Flu Clinics, which are likely to be held in October as usual.

In order to maintain patient safety we've had to find a new venue with separate entrance and exit facilities this year.  Ramsey Commissioners have kindly offered the Ramsey Courthouse and we would like to thank them for helping us provide this service to our community.

Once we have a confirmed delivery date for the vaccines we'll update our website and Facebook page with the Clinic dates.

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.
