Noticeboard

IT systems in practices NHS Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group is advising patients that some practices are currently experiencing issues with slow IT systems, which may impact upon how quickly practice staff can help.

 

These issues are not the fault of staff within your GP practice, so please do be patient, they want to help you and will to their best to do so.

The slow access to systems is due to issues with the national N3 network - the national broadband network for the NHS - which is currently being replaced in stages across the country.

 

Local migration to the new Health and Social Care Network (the replacement for the N3 network) will take place within the next 6-8 weeks and once the work has been completed will provide a reliable and efficient service for GP practices. Thank you to all local people for their patience in this matter and for supporting your GP practice during the transition period.

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.
