As an added service for our patients we employ the services of several other specialist personnel:
Pharmacist - Our in-house pharmacist is available by appointment to discuss your prescribing needs and any issues you may have regarding your medication.
No doctors appointment is necessary, you can ask for an appointment in the usual way.
Phlebotomy - Our phlebotomy department is open every weekday morning from 8.30am for patients who are fasting or who will be continuing on to their place of work and from 9.00am for everyone else, appointments are generally not required.
Phlebotomy finishes at 12.30pm but the doors may close before then if it is busy.
Phlebotomy is now also open on a Monday & Tuesday afternoon between 1.00pm and 3.00pm.
Counsellors - NHS counsellors are available by referral either by a doctor or self-referral via telephone helpline. Please ask at reception for a leaflet with contact details for the relevant NHS counselling service.
