Phlebotomy

Clinics are held every day at the practice by both our Health Care Assistants and the Hospital Phlebotomist.

Early morning and lunchtime appointments are available.

 

Fasting Blood Tests

If you need a fasting blood test, please book an early morning appointment with our Health Care Assistant.  

For a fasting blood test, you should have nothing to eat or drink APART FROM WATER from 14 hours prior to your test.

 

INR Blood Tests

We hold INR Clinics on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and lunchtimes. We process our own INR testing in-house so you will have result before you leave the surgery. On occasion your result may need to be reviewed by a GP so you may be asked to wait for a short while whilst whilst we complete these checks.

 

X-Rays

If your GP has referred for an X-Ray the Radiology Department will notify you directly of your appointment time.

 

Test and X-Ray Results

If your test result is normal, the practice will not normally notify you.

However if you would like to ring the surgery to check on any test results, please ring the Surgery Enquiries telephone number (01242 580511) after 3pm in the afternoon.

We plan to introduce a text service to confirm your investigation results in the near future.
