Thursday 18th October 2018 come and meet the Occupational Therapists…

So what do Occupational Therapist do?

Occupational Therapists help people to live life their way. When physical or mental illness, or the effects of ageing stop you doing some activities – whether it’s getting washed or going back to work, or doing the fun things such as socialising – this affects your health and wellbeing. We can work with you to find different ways of carrying out activities to help you live life your way and we will be bringing some of our small equipment to your surgery in the morning to show you how. Drop in and say hello and find out about our service.

X-Ray

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.
