BLOOD TESTS

BLOOD TESTS

We have been advised by NHS ENGLAND that we are currently not able to perform Routine /Non urgent blood tests due to National shortage of blood bottles

We would advice if you are due any routine bloods to contact the surgery after 6-8 weeks to see if this advice has been updated

This will not affect urgent blood tests

Thank you

FLU VACCINATION

FLU VACCINATION FOR 50 TO 64 YEARS OLD

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
