Noticeboard

WALK-IN EMERGENCY CLINIC - In response to complaints and suggestions about the appointment system, the Practice has chosen to adopt a walk-in emergency surgery.  Any patient with a single URGENT problem, needing to be seen the same day, may choose to attend between 8.30am and 10.30am on a sit and wait basis. Patients will be seen in order of priority.

NAMED GP FOR PATIENTS

Aldergate Medical Practice provides all patients with a named GP to oversee their care.  This will not affect systems already in place and you will be able to continue to book appointments with other GP's in the Practice.

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.
