Changes to Pattingham's Phlebotomy Walk In Clinic
From Tuesday 7th October the walk in bloods clinic based at Pattingham Surgery will be appointment only. This will aim to reduce waiting time for patients to be seen by the phlebotomist.
The process in which a blood test is requested has also changed. All requests now go electronically to the hospital where the sample is tested. It is not possible to add requests or edit the requests that have already been sent to the lab.
Patients requiring an INR and a regular blood test are reminded to book a double appointment.
Appointments can be made by telephone or in person at both Claverley or Pattingham Surgeries.
All patients aged 75 and above now have an allocated NAMED GP. This is a national requirement from NHS England. Your named GP is the one whose name appears on your repeat prescriptions. You can still choose which GP you see at the surgery.
