Blood Test Results
If a clinician at the surgery has asked you to have blood tests, please remember it is the patient's responsibility to contact the surgery approximately 5 days after the bloods have been taken for the results. Reminder letters will no longer be sent out for repeat bloods due.
We have commenced using a text and email reminder service at the surgery. This will be used in many positive ways such as:
- Appointment confirmation and reminders. The patient can also cancel their appointment via text or email.
- Campaigns such as flu, shingles etc.
- Gathering data for eg: Friends and Family, smoking status.
- Sending out our Newsletter and patient questionnaires ( email )
For this service to be effective we need up to date mobile telephone numbers and email address. Please contact the surgery to update your contact details. You can use the Update Contact Form below.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH FOR US TO CONTACT YOU VIA EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE, PLEASE ADVISE THE SURGERY AND WE CAN BLOCK YOUR NUMBER AND/OR EMAIL BEING USED.
