Welcome To The Practice

A supplier to the NHS has advised them of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests. NHS England have therefore issued guidance to GPs that all nonurgent blood tests should be halted.

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.


Vaccines will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY as per Government guidelines.  Please DO NOT call to enquire/book appointments, you will be contacted by the Surgery in due course.
