EXEMPT FROM WEARING A FACE COVERING?

Following the latest government advice with regards to face coverings -

If you are exempt please do not ask your doctor for a letter.

There is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It is sufficient for you to self-declare this.

If you wish to travel on public transport:

You can download and print a card and carry it with you. You may want to print it and wear it on a lanyard or attach it to your clothing. You can show it if you are asked why you are not wearing a face covering. You can also display it on your phone.

This is available on the Transport for London website below

Dr Knox

We are sad to be saying goodbye to Dr Ramona Knox.

Dr Knox is moving to the Midlands with her family and we will miss her greatly. Dr Knox has been a highly valued member of the team.

We wish Dr Knox and her family all the very best.

 

If you are a patient of Dr Knox you will be reallocated a new GP but not until the pandemic level is lower – at the moment as I hope you appreciate it is all hands to the deck. We do recommend that you try to see the same GP for continuity. More on new appointment availability coming soon.

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 an 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.
