    Blood bottle shortage

    Please be advised that there is currently a nationwide shortage of blood test bottles and as a result all GP surgeries have been asked to limit the amount of blood tests we are doing, unfortunately this means that we have had to temporarily stop all routine medication and chronic disease monitoring. As soon as we are advised that we can resume blood tests we will be in touch with all the patients that have had their appointments cancelled to rearrange. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    Flu vaccination for people aged 50-64

    Please note that people in the 50 to 64-year-old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50 to 64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from flu, you will be invited earlier.
