Urgent News about blood tests - 27.08.21


There is a national shortage of blood bottles which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021. We have been advised by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests. We will advise you if we feel that you urgently require a blood test and advise you when the situation changes. This situation is out of our control; thank you for your patience.


COVID 19 Update August 2021


July 19th 2021 is when all restrictions for COVID were removed. The practice is a high risk environment and we are keen to maintain a safe and healthy place for you to be. Please help us to keep you and those around you safe.  Masks - the continued wearing of masks is current government guidance and is strongly recommended. Please wear your mask if you come into the practice for any reason.  Social distancing - we will continue to promote social distance awareness.  Please use chairs available in the waiting area, which are separated for distance purposes. If there is no seating left, please consider waiting outside until one becomes available.  Hand Sanitiser - this will continue to be provided. Please use when entering the building and when leaving.  Your help with keeping us safe is appreciated. Many thanks.

Referrals

If you are referred by the Practice to the hospital, you should receive an acknowledgement from them within a couple of weeks. If you do not hear from them, please let the surgery know so that we can ensure that the referral has been received and is being processed accordingly.

Following a referral, you will be asked to attend an appointment at the hospital or other provider. If you do not attend the appointment, the hospital may send you a further appointment. However, they may discharge you from the waiting list and you will need to be re-referred by your GP to the hospital.

Please bear in mind that it is not the responsibility of the practice to ensure that patients attend appointments at the hospital or any other type of medical service provider.
