Due to ongoing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are temporarily suspending the facility for patients to book online appointments at the surgery. This is to ensure that we are able to fully assess risk before appointments are booked at the surgery.

As you will be aware the practice uses eConsult and patients are advised to seek advice via this service.

Becton Dickinson blood specimen collection - supply disruption

• 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, or your appointment may be rescheduled.

• 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.

You still need to wear a face covering in this building after 19 July.

If you don’t have a face covering (that covers your mouth and nose) please speak to a member of staff.

You do not need to wear a face covering if you are exempt.
