Blood Bottle Shortage

We have been advised by NHS England that due to an international shortage of blood tubes, we are unable to carry out any routine blood tests for the time being.

If you already have a booked appointment for a blood test, it will be reviewed and only cancelled if the clinician feels it is safe to do so. If your appointment is cancelled you will be contacted directly to inform you. PLEASE DO NOT TELEPHONE THE SURGERY REGARDING THIS. 

The online facility to book routine blood tests has temporarily been disabled until we receive further notification from NHS England.

COVID-19 Control Measures

COVID

We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining COVID-19 restrictions in England from the 19th July.
Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.
We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
  • Social distancing
  • Face coverings
  • PPE for healthcare staff
  • Patients to wait outside or in their car for all face to face appointments

The delta variant is more transmissible and patients may come to the Surgery when they are contagious.

It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.

Thank you for your continued support.
