Noticeboard

There are current shortages of ranitidine medication.  This is a national problem.  Please make sure you use any additional stocks of ranitidine before ordering more.  If your local pharmacy has not got supplies then it is worth contacting other pharmacies before asking the surgery for an alternative medication.  Unfortunately we do not know when these supply issues will be resolved and we appreciate the frustrations you all feel when these problems occur.

 If you are 65 years or older please contact reception to book your flu vaccine

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.
