BLOOD TESTING

You may have seen in the media about the nationwide shortage of blood test bottles. We wanted to let you know that locally we have been asked by both hospital labs to restrict blood testing. We won't be able to invite patients to come for routine blood testing until this restriction is lifted. We will continue urgent blood testing as requested by our doctors and some high risk monitoring. We apologise for this situation which is outside our control.

We unfortunately haven't been given a timescale on this.

As soon as we are allowed to resume, we will release the blood test slots for our patients

The Practice is next closed for staff training on the following afternoon: 

Wednesday 15th September 2021

We are very pleased to share the results of the latest national survey

which asked patients their opinion of our service- Our staff work very

hard to provide the best service they can and the results of this clearly reflect

the good job they do. Well done and thank you to all the patients who responded.

Buckinghamshire CCG - Ordering repeat medicines Aug 2018

Following successful trial in other areas- Bucks CCG is requiring that from 1.8.18 only prescription requests from patients or their carers will be accepted- exception can be made if this would cause great difficulty for patients in accessing their medications. 

The evidence is that is patients or carers order medications there is much less waste saving the NHS money without reduction in treatment
