SICK NOTE INFORMATION FROM 20th MARCH 2020

Those who have COVID-19 (Corona Virus) or advised to self-isolate will be able to obtain an isolation note by visiting NHS 111 online and completing an online form rather than contacting a GP.  For COVID 19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a "fit note" after seven days of sickness absence.  Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.

 

This will help during the Cornavirus outbreak as it cuts down visiting the surgery.

 

 

 

 

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.
