Online Blood Test Appointments
We currently offer an online booking service to reduce the amount of calls coming into the practice. Unfortunatley the online blood test appointments are being incorrectly booked which is wasting appointments on a daily basis. PLEASE ONLY BOOK A BLOOD TEST WHEN ASKED TO DO SO BY YOUR CLINICIAN. If we continue to receive incorrectly booked appointments we will have to remove this service.
Online Appointments Available
If you have online access, you can now book your blood test and cervical screening appointmens online!
Blood tests are available between 9am-2pm Mon-Fri and from July, our HCA's will have some early morning appointments which will be available to book. These will be from 08:40, we hope this will help patients in organising tests and make it more convenient for people who need to get to work or school etc.
Please only book an appointment for cervical screening if you have been invitied by letter or text.
If you do not have online access, you can sign up by visiting our Patient Record page.
We currently have Physiotherapy appointments available on Saturday 10th June. These are all telephone appointments.
