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.



*** Dr Cherry leaving***

We're sorry to announce that Dr Cherry will be leaving the practice on 30.4.14. We know that the many patients who she has cared for over the last year will miss her. She has also been a great colleague and all the doctors and staff would like to thank her for all she has done for our practice and our patients.

Dr Cherry says: 'I am sad to say goodbye to Cornbrook Medical Practice. I have very much enjoyed getting to know the staff, and more importantly, you, the patients over the last year. I hope I have been able to provide a good service and been supportive to those who have needed support. I am moving on to work a bit more flexibly, so that I might spend a bit more time with my family but you may just see me back at Cornbrook for the occasional surgery as I will still be around Manchester.'

Dr Tina Randall will be replacing Dr Cherry on 1.5.14. Many patients will remember Dr Randall as she worked at the City Road Site as a maternity locum in 2013.


Out of Hours
The practice should be your first point of contact when seeking medical advice or treatment.
To obtain help out of hours please phone the surgery number. Your call will be diverted to the emergency centre, Go To Doc, where a nurse will either offer advice, make an appointment for you to see a doctor at the centre or arrange for a doctor to visit you at home if you are seriously ill.

Telephone Advice

If you want to speak to the doctor on the telephone or just want some advice that doesn't require you coming in to the surgery, please ask for a telephone consultation. If you telephone before 10.00am your call will be returned the same morning.

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to let us know on 0161 227 9785 (Boundary) or 0161 872 8129 (City Road).
