We are occasionally sending text messages to patients with a link attached for a questionnaire to be completed. Thank you for your co-operation if you receive on of these texts.

 Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser when attending the Surgery and our patient-facing staff will continue to wear PPE.

 

We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when the patients come to us they may be sick and vulnerable, and some cannot receive the Covid vaccine due to medical reasons, so we feel it would be wrong to not continue with these small precautions that can help to protect the patients and staff.

 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

 

Dr Awan and Partners

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
