The NHS need people who've had coronavirus (COVID-19) to donate blood plasma to potentially help others. Blood plasma is a yellowish liquid that makes up about half your blood volume. After a virus, your plasma contains antibodies that are vital in helping to fight infections, like COVID-19. The NHS are collecting blood plasma for use in scientific research and possible COVID-19 treatments, especially for those who are elderly or have weaker immune systems. If you are 18-65 who's had COVID-19 then please visit https://rb.gy/vptins  for more information. Thank for all your support.

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.
