Noticeboard

We are delighted to announce that patients of our practice are being invited for the Covid-19 vaccination. The programme rollout is phased to ensure vaccine deliveries, logistics and staffing are robustly implemented and consequently, in line with national guidance. Please be assured that we are working tirelessly to telephone patients who are eligible to make vaccination appointments as soon as they are available.


We ask all of you in our practice community to please be patient and wait for your call. Our phones are incredibly busy with poorly patients seeking medical advice and treatment at this time of year and we must ask that you do not call us to enquire about the Covid-19 vaccination. As more vaccine is delivered, more people from other eligible cohorts will be contacted and invited for vaccination in due course. You may find it helpful to read more information about the Doncaster vaccination programme rollout and FAQs on the NHS Doncaster CCG website: https://www.doncasterccg.nhs.uk/your-care/coronavirus-latest-news-and-information/covid-19-vaccine/


 


Thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst our staff work hard to ensure the vaccination programme rollout is a success across the Doncaster South Primary Care Network.



COVID-19 VACCINE SCAM ALERT - If you receive a message from, what looks like, the NHS, but it is asking for your bank details or requests payment to book a COVID vaccine – THIS IS A SCAM. When you are eligible for your vaccine you will be contacted directly by your GP Practice for your FREE COVID vaccine appointment.


 



The practice is now on Facebook! Our page, 'The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice', is an information bulletin to keep our patient's informed on all things happening at the practice and any updates or information on programmes within the NHS.

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.
