Blood Tests During the Coronavirus Crisis

If you are on a medicine that requires a blood test  to monitor its safety either three monthly or more frequently than this, it is vital you continue to book and have these at the surgery as usual.

Please note, due to dealing with the impact of Covid-19, we are currently only booking nurse appointments one week in advance.

Examples of medicines requiring regular monitoring for their safety include :

  • Warfarin
  • Methotrexate
  • Azathioprine
  • Lithium and others

Every effort is being made to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff. Please do not enter the surgery for  a blood test if you have a new/persistant cough or fever,  or loss of taste or smell. You should not proceed with your blood test but return home and telephone the surgery .

Please note - you will only hear the results of your blood test if there is an abnormality detected.
