FLU CLINICS NOW AVAILABLE
We are aware that you are being asked by Pharmacists to have your flu jab with them and stating it takes the pressure off GP surgeries. We would prefer you to have the vaccination here as it gives our nurses an opportunity to see if there is anything outstanding in your records e.g. blood tests, blood pressure check etc.


If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant, or have a chronic condition (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, history of splenectomy etc.) you may be eligible for a flu jab.
Please contact Hickings Lane Medical Centre to book your flu appointment



Did you know that you can now order repeat prescriptions and book routine GP appointments online? If you would like access to this service please ask at reception or see our online services page for details.

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.
