What is GDPR?

GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed, kept safe and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The regulation applies from 25 May 2018. GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 which the practice already complies with but strengthens many of it’s principle.

You can find more information on the further information tab under the heading 'GDPR'. We have all of this information displayed in the patient notice board in the practice. If you have any questions then please speak to the Practice Manager.

 

MEDICATION IMPROVEMENTS - the practice is now running some prescribing improvement projects to ensure that you receive the safest and most cost-effective medications for your conditions. You will receive a letter directly if you are affected by any of these changes.

 

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.
