IMPORTANT CHANGES TO URGENT CARE SERVICES IN THE SOUTH TEES AREA FROM 1st APRIL 2017.

 

From 1st April 2017 the existing Walk-in Centres in North Ormesby and Eston will be replaced by four GP centres based in North Ormesby Health Village, One Life Centre in Linthorpe, Redcar Primary Care Hospital and East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton. These centres will be open from 6pm to 9.30pm - Monday to Friday - and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.

 

To help improve patient waiting times the centres will operate an appointment based system - you won’t be able to simply walk-in.

 

Please click the link below for further information including details of how to arrange an appointment when we are closed.

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.
