                                   ***CHANGES TO ALL APPOINTMENT BOOKINGS***


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE***
The Wooda Surgery remains open for business however in order to protect our most vulnerable patients, our staff and Doctors we have made some temporary changes to our access to the building and our appointment booking process.


Due to the latest government advice, we are trying to slow the spread of the Coronavirus -COVID-19. We are therefore using a full Telephone Triage system as from Monday 16th March to reduce the visits to the surgery by people with symptoms of "a new fever" or "a new cough".



If you have either of these symptoms, please do not contact the practice in the first instance. Please use NHS 111 online where full triage can be made and advice and guidance given. If you are unable to access the internet for this, please call NHS 111.


If you do not have any of these symptoms but still need to access healthcare, please call our Reception team where a Telephone Triage appointment can be booked.


Patients requiring other routine appointments, i.e. blood tests and regular dressings will be screened accordingly by our Reception team.


Please note that our intercom system will be in operation on the doors into the practice for any patients attending for their booked appointment or general enquiries to enable us to manage the flow of patients in and out of the practice.


We thank you in advance for your cooperation.


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.
