NON URGENT Blood Testing
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
The Surgery will be CLOSED from 14:30 pm on Thursday 23rd September 2021. If you have a medical emergency, please call 111. The surgery will re-open at 08:30 am on Friday 24th September 2021.
Childhood illnesses are rising as restrictions ease and people mix more. For the majority of children these illnesses will not be serious and they will soon recover following rest and fluids. You can make sure you know how to care for your unwell child and when it’s important to get help by visiting:
Your NHS is here for you.
