Blood Tests

As previously communicated nationally there is a shortage of blood test bottles, therefore we have been asked to reduce the amount of blood tests that we perform until this issue is resolved. Thank you for your patience with us as we request or contact you regarding routine blood test appointments to be delayed due to this. We shall keep you updated on this going forward.

New Improved Telephone System

In response to patient feedback we have implemented a new telephone system which goes live today! Please bare with us if there are any unforeseen glitches, we expect this will be a positive step in improving our communication channels and thank you for your feedback and patience!

Flu Jabs

We plan to start these from 10th September so keep an eye out here for updates for the flu jabs and covid boosters! Watch this space for updates!

Let’s continue to keep each other safe, especially with the Delta variant circulating, and remember to grab a jab!
