Appointments


Dr Morris is currently off work as she has been unwell.  She is likely to be off for 2 to 3 months so please bear with us during her absence.  The practice will be using locum doctors to help cover her absence. She has been well cared for by the NHS and will be back to work as soon as she is fit and well enough to do so.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.  


Walking Group


Congratulations to Dr Clare Morris on a successful first walking group on Tuesday 22nd May (photo on our Practice Team Work tab). The next lunchtime walk is on the 26th June 2018 at 1pm at Ashfield. Dr Carmichael along with lots of the team will be leading the walk in Dr Morris' absence so please do come along and support the initiative. 


Clinical pharmacist


We now have a clinical pharmacist working at the practice.  As a specialist in medicine, you can see her if you have medication related problems to discuss rather than seeing a GP.  As at reception.

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. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface.

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