FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST 

 The ‘Friends and Family Test’ was initially introduced to improve patient care and identify best performing hospitals in England by measuring patient feedback. Over the past 2 years, the test has been expanded by NHS England to include GPs, NHS dentists and ambulance services. 
 
You can give feedback after an appointment with the practice at reception or by text message. You will receive the survey invitation on your mobile phone within 2-3 hours following the appointment.
 

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today.

 Blood Tests

A 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.
