Merger Information

Due to significant changes in funding provision that we were relying on to deliver the proposed single site, Moatfield Surgery will not be merging with Judges Close surgery. Sadly, without the significant premises development needed to deliver a site that is fit for purpose able to cater for a large, merged Practice, many of the benefits we have described in our business plans and public consultations would not be realised.

After very careful consideration, we are unable to justify the even greater challenges and pressures on our already limited and stretched resources that merging, without the any of the benefits of a single site, would demand.

Both practices will continue to work together to provide a high standard of care for patients and we remain committed to continue to look at new ways of providing  high quality and  flexible services.

We are immensely grateful for the support that our patients have given us towards this project and at both public meetings. We are looking forward to continuing to develop and enhance what we offer and to continue to work closely with our local Practices.

 

 

Judges Close Surgery will be closed on Wednesday 21st November 2018 from 12.30pm for a regional training event. In case of an emergency, please telephone 999 For medical advice, please telephone NHS111 by dialing 111

The surgery will re-open Thursday morning as usual.

 

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.

If you require a blood test you will be offered an appointment with either a nurse, healthcare assistant or phlebotomist.

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