Horsefair Surgery Open Day 

Tuesday 22nd August between 8.30am & 6.00pm

Following a CQC re-inspection in May, the subsequent media coverage and the resignation of the Partners, our Patient Participation Group felt it would be a good opportunity to give patients of Horsefair a chance to pop in and find out what is actually happening with their surgery.

This is your opportunity to ask any questions, raise any concerns and dispel the rumours you are hearing. 

As well as members of the PPG, Fiona and Julia, Horsefair's new management team, will be on hand to answer to your questions and listen to your concerns.

We look forward to seeing you.

 

 

 

 

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.
