Update on the COVID-19 booster programme:

Please note from 14th December 2021 we are supporting the Booster vaccine programme at North Anston and this involves all staff at the Practice.

We have had to provide staff at very short notice to cover shifts from 7am to 9pm to enable us to reach the government target of vaccinating everyone over 18 years of age by the end of the year.

As always, we will continue to support you all during this period, but please be aware our resources will be stretched.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during these unprecedented times.



 
 

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.

Our phlebotomist works every morning. Please note we do not do blood tests for children under 12. These will be referred to the hospital.

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