COVID-19 vaccinations

Please DO NOT call or email the Practice asking when your COVID Vaccination (either first or second dose) is going to be.

We are currently working through Cohorts 5 & 6 and catching up with the very last of previous cohorts.

There have been very thorough assessments made of those deemed to be 'clinically extremely vulnerable' and 'higher risk of serious disease and mortality' so there is no need to clarify this with the practice.

We have processes to ensure no one is missed and you will be contacted shortly if you have not yet had your first dose.

Do not contact the surgery to ask about your vaccination unless it is to provide an up to date mobile number via mullion.healthcentre@nhs.net with the title "mobile number".

Here is the Government Website link which is useful with regards to the vaccination programme and definitions.

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.
