An 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.
NHS clinics are held at Haslemere, Milford and the Royal Surrey in Guildford.
If you need an X-ray, you will be given a form. Along the top are the phone numbers you will need - just phone them up, book yourself in and take the form with you when you go.
X-ray results typically take 2 weeks to come back. Your doctor will have told you how to get your results which may be by phone (speak to your doctor's secretary) or as part of a follow-up appointment.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
