Our online booking system is currently switched off to allow us to triage appointment requests as appropriate.  This is in line with NHS Guidance.  Repeat prescriptions can still be ordered via the online portal.

Coronavirus -  Do not attend the Surgery if you have symptoms which you think could be related to this condition.

We are unable to accept routine patient registrations at this time, our workload capacity is not able to meet current demand on our service.

Repeat Prescriptions

We would like to remind patients repeat prescription requests are available 3 working days after your request has been handed in. If you have requested a non-repeat item, this may take a little longer to process as the doctor has to review your requirement in more detail.

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. The usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

 

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
