Charity Fundraiser! Week commencing 10th to the 16th June was Cervical Cancer Awareness week with "Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust" - We enjoyed supporting this important cause at the practice and there are some pictures below. Events included guessing the name of the Teddy Bear which was guessed correctly and won by Dr Naheema Javed and also guessing the number of sweets in the jar contest which was won by Teddy a very happy little boy who had to wait until he returned from holiday to find out the good news! 

Thanks to all who donated and took part - a grand total of £140 was raised which is all down to the kindness of staff and patients who took part.

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.
