PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US TO BOOK A BLOOD TEST

Problems with an NHS supplier, Roche, has led to a temporary shortage in some of the chemicals hospital laboratories use to process some blood test results. Roche are working urgently to resolve this. We are doing everything we can to reduce the impact on our patients. Unfortunately, we are having to cancel some blood tests. We appreciate how frustrating this is for those affected and we share your frustration. We will send out an SMS message and update our website once this issue is resolved and patients can once again book a blood test with us. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) 

You must stay at home (self-isolate) if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or you test positive. Anyone you live with must also self-isolate.

To get a test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19), go to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus. Call 119 to get a test if you do not have internet access.

While you’re staying at home with coronavirus (COVID-19), you can ease mild symptoms by resting, drinking plenty of fluids and taking painkillers

FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN BY ALL ADULTS (GREATER THAN 12 YEARS OLD) IF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED TO ATTEND THE GP SURGERY

Latest scientific advice says that face coverings can help reduce the chance of infecting others. We want to do our best to protect both patients and our staff. Face coverings can be a simple cloth that covers the nose and mouth, that can be made at home. We regret we are unable to provide Face coverings for patients. Children less than 12 years old do not have to wear Face covering.
