OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINE

Processing these prescriptions can cost 20 times the price of buying identical medication at your local pharmacy or supermarket

THE PRACTICE WOULD LIKE TO ASK  PATIENT'S WHO REQUIRE MEDICATION FOR HAYFEVER AND ALLERGIES TO PURCHASE THESE AT YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY OR SUPERMARKET. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.

 

**ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY**

Please note the practice operates a zero tolerance policy. In recent months we have noticed a significant increase in abuse towards our staff. At Cityview Medical we treat all our patients with dignity and respect and we expect all our staff to be treated with respect. We will not tolerate any abusive language, threatening behaviour or aggression towards any member of staff. Any violation of this policy will result in removal from the practice list.

PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
