Phlebotomy (bloods) Service
There is a walk-in service for blood tests between 8.30am - 11.30am Monday to Friday. Patients are seen in order of arrival. You can book an appointment for a fasting blood test or a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) if you doctor has requested these tests; these patients are seen out of order, at the time of their appointment.
Please wait for one week before telephoning for your test results. This allows time for the result to come back to the practice from the hospital, and for your doctor to check it. Please call between 10am and 4.30pm to request your results. (we are closed between 1pm - 2pm). A receptionist will ask one of our practice nurses to call you back on the same day. Make sure we have the correct telephone number for you.
Free prescriptions for cancer patients
From 1st April 2009 cancer patients in England are entitled to free prescriptions. Apply for an exemption certificate by collecting an application form from your GP or oncology clinic now.
