Global shortage of some equipment for taking blood tests
A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.
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.
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.
Flu Vaccination clinic 18 September
We have been informed due to transportation issues our delivery of flu vaccines will be delayed.
Our flu clinic planned for Saturday 18 September has had to be cancelled. Anyone with an appointment that day should not attend. We will contact patients asking them to book an appointment once we have a delivery.
We are currently recruiting for a part time qualified phlebotomist and a part time administrator.
Please see details on the NHS jobs website
If you have a new continuous cough or temperature of over 37.8 please do not attend the surgery but log on to 111.nhs.uk and follow their advice.
