SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

We will be asking every patient if they are happy to share their medical record with other users of the same clinical system. This is for the purpose of giving you the correct treatment if you attend a walk in centre or other healthcare provider.  

Success Centres at Moredon Medical Centre & Swindon NHS Health Centre - during periods of limited appointments patients may be offered alternative appointments at one of Swindon’s Success Centre's based at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre. Reception staff will be able to book you directly into a booked GP appointment at the centre. These appointments are for minor ailments and not ongoing medical conditions. There are now additional GP appointments, operating on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-8pm at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre.

Text Reminder of Appointments - patients will now receive a text message reminder of their appointments at the surgery, the surgery would be grateful if patients could keep us informed of any changes to their mobile numbers.

Card Payments - Patients are advised that the surgery does not accept card payments. All payments should be by cash or cheque.

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.
