Car Park

The University has introduced Pay & Display around our car park at the back of the surgery. Patients attending the surgery for 90 minutes or less can park without charge in the car park area closest to the surgery.

Named Doctor

All patients have a named doctor and you will be informed who that is when you register for the first time. However we have an "open list policy" which means you are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but we would strongly advise trying to see a consistent doctor, especially for long term health conditions. Please see here for more information.

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.

X-rays are available at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital between 14:00 and 19:30 without appointment - you must bring the form completed by the doctor - and the practice receives the result within a week .

Scans and more involved x-rays are available by appointment only and these will be notified to you by post directly from the QEH.

The x-ray department is on the ground floor and is accessed from the main entrance.
