From Monday 8th June we are opening the surgery main door at Edlesborough for prescription collection and pre booked appointments only  

To book appointments and for queries we ask you to phone us.

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have medication to collect or have a pre booked appointment.

We have marked out a one way system within the practice at both sites with tape to mark 2 metres. I think we are by now all used to spacing – please please be prepared to wait outside if the maximum number of patients are in the practice

If you are unwell with a fever, cough or loss of taste/ smell please call 111- under no circumstances should you come to the practice. For the protection of staff and other patients, patients with these symptoms are being assessed at a central hub.

Thank you for helping us to keep the footfall in the surgery to a minimum so that we can offer you the best possible service whilst observing good social distancing.

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.
