By appointment with our practice nurse
The practice offers this service to all patients that are registered at the practice, between 08:30-09:30 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
You do not require an appointment, just bring your blood test request form with you, book in at reception and you will be seen in turn by the practice nurses.
Please note we do not offer this service to children.
When attending to have your blood test taken please ensure that you are well hydrated with water. This also applies to patients that have fasted.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not always a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
