Noticeboard

Peacock Surgery is continuing to experience high levels of sickness and staff absence. We are working hard to try to maintain services. We respectfully ask for your understanding at this difficult time.

FACE COVERINGS/MASKS: If you have an appointment with us or need to attend Peacock Surgery,  we ask that you understand it is important that you wear a face covering at all times too, when in the surgery, despite this ruling now being relaxed. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and colleagues in the surgery.

Our team will continue to wear face masks and other PPE as required, to protect our patients and our colleagues and prevent possible infections.

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.
