EXTENDED ACCESS CLINICS

From 1st July the practice will run an early morning clinic 07.30 - 08.00 a.m. Monday to Friday. This is only for pre-booked appointments and no other services will be available during this time.

This practice is also a member of the local GP Confederation (NICs). The federation provides early evening and weekend GP appointments at the Bedser Hub which is located in the Woking Community Hospital. These appointments are pre-bookable through either of our receptions.

NICs have also contracted with LIVI to provide video consultations, on smart phones and tablets, with an NHS GP on behalf of the practice. Download the LIVI app and follow the on screen instructions. 

THE CQC HAVE RATED THIS PRACTICE AS GOOD 

Patients can now book GP appointments, request repeat medication and view their medical records on line. Go to the on-line access page under the appointments tab and complete the registration form or download the NHS App from the APP store.

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.
