 COVID PASSPORT

Your GP is currently not able to provide you with a COVID Vaccination Certificate or a Vaccination Passport. These documents have not yet been developed – so please do not contact the surgery to enquire. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.

However if you have a smartphone or tablet you can find details of all your vaccinations including COVID by registering on the NHS App using the link below. You will also have access to your medical history and be able to manage your prescriptions online.

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. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

 

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