PRESCRIBING GUIDELINES: In March 2018, NHS England published guidelines about reducing the prescribing of medicines or treatments that are available to buy over the counter. This means that certain medicines may no longer be prescribed if you can buy them over the counter. Click on Prescriptions from the main menu for details on which medicines can be purchased from a Pharmacy.

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.
