Due to a UK wide shortage of specific blood bottles, we have no option but to postpone all routine/non urgent blood appointments.
We have to restrict blood tests for those that are HIGH PRIORITY for clinical care until the national stock levels recover. We believe this will be in two-three months time.
We apologise for any distress this may cause but it is outside of our control.
Please be aware that due to exceptional demand on GP services we will be restricting access to the ‘Ask my GP’ system. The system will be made available from 7.30am to 5pm daily Monday to Friday. The system will not be available overnight or at the weekend. Please may we request that you submit all requests by 10am daily where possible as only urgent requests will be looked at after this time. Many thanks.
If you have a medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery is open, please contact the out of hours service by calling 111.
NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent medical problem and you’re not sure what to do. For children under 5 call 111
If you or someone you know is suffering from sudden chest pain or another emergency, please dial 999.
