Antibody Test for Covid -19
If you have a blood test booked you can now ask for the antibody test when you come in for your appointment and it will be done with your other bloods.
Unfortunately you can not book/request an antibody test on it's own at this moment in time.
Please see attached leaflet for more information.

NHS Health at Home campaign
The NHS Health at Home campaign signposts you to the information you need to access NHS services online from home. As well as general assets for those with health concerns, ordering repeat prescriptions and video consolations, specific assets are now available for some long-term illnesses/vulnerable patients such as those with diabetes or asthma and pregnant people and new parents.
Following Government guidelines ALL patients visiting the practice will be asked to wear a face covering. If you present at the practice without a face covering we will have to send you away .
Face coverings are not only to protect yourself but also the safety of other patients as well as our Doctors, Nurses & other staff members.
We thought this handy government link on ways you can make your own face coverings would be helpful; they don’t have to be a surgical masks.
Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support during this time
