Noticeboard

We are terribly sorry and disappointed to have had to cancel our planned flu clinic for the 50-64year olds this Wednesday 25th. We have the vaccine and staff ready and organised for your appointments. NHS England however, have refused permission to allow clinics to be run before 1st December, for contractual reasons.

We have taken this as high as we can as we feel we / our patients are being penalised for efficiency.

We can only apologise and we have rebooked you all- texts sent. Please only contact reception if the new appointment isn’t suitable.

FLU VACCINE:  As you are aware this year the influenza vaccine is being made available to all patients aged between 50 and 64 years old. We have now received our vaccine stocks for this cohort and are able to offer appointments. We will be running clinics on the next Wednesday morning, 2nd December, and Thursday 10th December at our Pitstone branch. If you are registered please book via our online access https://www.patientaccess.com/ or call your surgery (Eds 01525220333 or Pits 01525223211) only between the following times Tues - Fri 10-12 or Mon 11-12 to book an appointment

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

 

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
