Due to a National shortage of blood collection bottles, we have been advised to reduce the number of some blood tests in order to preserve our number of stock for urgent requests.
Priority will be given to specific blood tests according to national guidelines and patients will be booked an appointment where this meets the guidelines.
Unfortunately this will mean we will have to postpone any non-urgent blood requests. For those patients where this is the case, we will add you to our waiting list and you will be contacted in due course, as we receive further guidance.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause to our patients, unfortunately this is a national issue and beyond our control. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Covid Vaccine Roll out
It’s been a busy and hopeful start to 2021 with the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine. Staff have worked over weekends, adapted their shifts and even adopted the role of marshalls and assisting GPs and Nurses with documenting vaccines given on the national system. Not to mention the careful planning that takes place in the background. We have also vaccinated our care homes and housebound patients in addition to the clinics. Whilst we have made a brilliant start there is much more work to be done. You can help us by:
Making sure we have the correct phone number for yourself or anyone you care for.
Please try not to contact the surgery about the vaccines. We will contact you when it’s time for you to be vaccinated.
Arrive on time if you have an appointment in a vaccine clinic.
Let us know if you can’t attend your appointment. This will allow time to offer it to another patient.
Be aware that you may be asked to go for a vaccination at a site that you do not normally visit.
Here are a few pictures of our team in clinics and vaccinating in the community.
