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.



On the 30th July 2014 Woodstock Surgery will have a major computer software upgrade.  We have spent a long time in preparation for this and expect the transfer to go well.

As a precaution the doctors will only be available for 'on the day' appointments on Wednesday 30th, Thursday 31st July and Friday 1st August. These appointments will be routine as well as urgent.

Our staff will have received training, but your patience for the first few days will be much appreciated.

Thank you

Sue Kavanagh

Practice Manager
