Reception Staff Shortage

We will be short-staffed this week and apologise in advance for the queue.

Isolation periods and sickness are causing us to be short staffed in different areas of the Practice. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused, and are working hard to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.

 

How our patients can help us avoid long queues: We would really appreciate patients calling after 12pm if they need a nurse appointment booked, or have any other non-urgent requests. Please use a symptom checker such as the AskFirst app (you can click on the ask first chat bubble bottom right of this page) if you are unsure of what care you need. These little changes make a big impact so thank you

Blood Bottle Shortage

The NHS is currently experiencing some disruption to the supply of the bottles used for blood collection.  This may affect our ability to carry out some blood tests.

 

Where necessary, changes to patient’s blood testing will be made in consultation with individual patients. Any tests that have been delayed will be carried out in the future where appropriate.

 

Blood tests will only be deferred where it is clinically safe to do so.

 

Work is ongoing between the NHS Supply Chain and their providers to resolve the supply disruption.
