TRAVEL VACCINATION CLINICS

We are now able to offer our patients travel advice.

Patients are advised to complete a travel risk assessment at least 4 weeks before your appointment so that the nurse can adequately assess your travel needs. These are available from reception or to download (above).

We also recommend you download a "Travel Well" leaflet from the link in the " Clinics and Services section of this website".

Your appointment must be booked before the assessment form will be assessed.

We also hold a price list for all of the private vaccines to download or to ask at reception. Please do bring cash or cheque to your appointment as we do not accept card payments.

The clinics will be held once a month at Milton Surgery with our Lead Nurse Sarah Birks or Lisa Jones.

We will not be able to advise imminent travellers, 4-6 weeks before travel only.

 

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.
