IMPORTANT NOTICE


 You may have noticed that there are now designated ‘Doctors’ parking spaces at the front of the Surgery. The council have implemented these as we will be losing access to our Car Park at the back of the Surgery for a prolonged period of time due to the ongoing cinema building work.


We must stress that these spaces are NOT for patient use and are for our Doctor’s and clinicians who require quick access in and out of the Surgery for home visits etc. In order for our staff to park in these spaces, we have to have a permit on show. Without a permit you will receive a parking ticket. Therefore we ask that our patient's do not park in these spaces as we don’t want you to incur any unexpected charges.



THANK YOU


 

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

 

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
