NEW HEALTH CENTRE

We are delighted to report that the West Dunbartonshire Council Planning Committee today approved the plans for a new Health and Care Centre in Clydebank. This represents a £19m investment to replace the existing health centre with a new integrated centre at Queens Quay. This will support the provision of high quality services and help improve the health and lives of the people of Clydebank. The new Health and Care Centre is scheduled to open in 2020. A series of communication will follow over the coming months providing further information.

For view of how Queens Quay will look and where the Health Centre will be located please follow this link:

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.
