URGENT MESSAGE FOR PATIENTS WITH BOOKED BLOOD APTS W/C 12th - 23rd Oct

 

Dear patient, due to a National major supply chain failure, GP Practices in the area, have very late this afternoon, been instructed to cancel all routine blood apts for the next two weeks with immediate effect. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this will cause, but we are asking all patients with blood apts booked for w/c 12th-23rd Oct to ring the surgery next week to rebook. We are currently trying to contact our patients to communicate this. Please understand this is entirely out of our hands and whilst our patient support team will do what they can to assist you when you ring in, they will be dealing with a large number of enquiries in relation to this matter. We thank you for your patience.

***FACE COVERINGS TO BE WORN WHEN ENTERING THE SURGERY***

To further protect our staff and patients the surgery would request that anyone entering the building has a face covering in place. This can be a mask or a simple covering such as a scarf. Thank you for your co-operation.

COVID-19 Update:

Patients are reminded that we are extremely busy and need to ensure that our most vulnerable patients are able to contact us easily. All non-urgent queries should, where you are able, be submitted via our online consultation request that can be found on our website.

Please be advised that the Practice is not currently running at its full staff capacity and this naturally adds to the pressures the Practice faces in handling high volumes of enquiries.
