Noticeboard

Keep your details up to date
Please do update your contact details (box at the bottom of screen) with home and mobile. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information, from NHS.NoReply  NHS.net

Blood tests now available
Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 08:30 to 10:00. Book your appointment at reception

Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

Sickness Certficates The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self Certification form, which can be found here

Or our courier can deliver it to the lab: but you must hand it in before 10.15am. It is imperative that they are clean mid-stream samples, following a bath/shower, otherwise contaminants like discharge can spoil the test.

This is a great service, and we get a report that is looked at by a cardiologist within a day or two.

If you don't hear within a few days of having had your blood test, then please ring reception. The responsibility is yours if you have not heard.. Understanding results 
Ring between 11.30am and 1pm Monday to Friday. You may ask for your cholesterol level if you wish.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results..
