Bad Weather

Many thanks for your patience over recent weeks with the 2-3 days of disruption due to bad weather. Please be assured we do all we can to offer a normal service in such times but have the same problems getting in as everyone else. In the last 2 occasions we had a doctor cycle in through the snow over 11 miles when his car couldn't get in and another doctor on their day off bring in their child towing them on a sledge to provide support for the doctors stuck in traffic. Our entire practice team makes gallant efforts to get in and provide the service needed.

Measles outbreak

Measles is highly contagious. Please see NHS Choices for advice if you are concerned that you or your child may have measles.

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.
