CHANGES TO REQUESTS FOR REPEAT MEDICATIONS - South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SLCCG) have instructed all Community Pharmacies that they may no longer accept Repeat Medication Requests from patients for delivery to Beechfield Medical Centre - the onus is now on patients to deliver their requests directly to us, or to register online with us and make their requests that way.  Arrangements have been made for those patients who consider themselves to be "vulnerable" to continue to service their requests through Community Pharmacies on application to the pharmacy.  Please note that if you are unable to register for online requests, then the simplest option will be to hand deliver your request outside of normal working hours, and post it in the letterbox for that purpose just to the left of the main entrance to the surgery building.  


Please note that this change has not been instigated or driven by the Practice, but we have no choice but to comply with the instructions of the SLCCG in this matter.


See Latest News Section for details of recent in house surveys of our services, and for details of our Training Closures in 2018, the next of which will be from 1430 on Tuesday 30 January 2018

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.

Please note that Beechfield Medical Centre does not carry out X-Rays at the practice, but if one is needed you will be referred either to a local facility or, if necessary, to a more specialised unit elsewhere.
