In order for the practice staff to mark the first year anniversary of the sad passing of one of our colleagues, the practice will shut its doors and only be contactable for emergencies on Wednesday 8th September between 12-2pm. If you are able to wait untile we re open please do so.
07/09/2021 - Flu Campaign
Following our initial planning for the delivery of this year’s flu campaign, we have now been informed that due to unforeseen road freight challenges, here will be a delay to our scheduled delivery by one to two weeks.
As a result we have had to cancel our initial clinic and are now working to reschedule planned influenza vaccination clinics.
We would like to reassure you that we are working hard to plan within the information we have.
Please note this is a national issue and not something we have any control over.
Please do not contact the practice we will contact you and keep lines of communication open on our website and Facebook pages.
07.09.2021 - Blood tests
We have been alerted us to a shortage of products from that is impacting across most main blood tube supplies.
Working closely with DHSC, NHS Supply Chain, the MHRA and colleagues from the devolved administrations, given the impact on other parts of the UK, NHS England and NHS Improvement is co-ordinating the NHS’ response in England, on a national basis.
The supply position remains constrained and is forecasted to become even more constrained over the coming weeks. While it is anticipated that the position will improve from the middle of September, overall supply is likely to remain challenging for a significant period
All primary care and community testing must be halted until 17 September 2021, except for clinically urgent testing. Examples of these include:
- Bloods that are required to facilitate a two week wait referral
- Bloods that are extremely overdue and/or essential for safe prescribing of medication or monitoring of condition (e.g. INR, lithium levels)
- Bloods that if taken could avoid a hospital admission or prevent an onward referral
- Those with suspected sepsis or conditions with a risk of death or disability
Unless otherwise contacted please do continue to attend your appointments, and if unsure do check with the practice first so a clinical decision can be made.
