Noticeboard

Due to the CVID-19- please DO NOT attend the surgery to book appointments. Please ring the reception to arrange a telephone triage appointment. If the GP wishes to see you then they will arrange a face to face appointment for you.

We are now seeing patients in nurse/ HCA clinics at both Norman Road and Victoria HC (Purple sites).   You will be given an appointment time, and we ask that you do not attend earlier as you will not be allowed inside the building until the nurse/ HCA calls you in. Can you please ensure that you are wearing a mask or mouth covering when attending the surgery. If you have any signs of symptoms for Covid-19 do not attend the surgery.  

Repeat prescriptions will be sent direct to your pharmacy.  We thank you for your co-operation. Please register to order your prescriptions on-line if you have not already registered.

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. 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.
