Blood Tests

If a clinician has asked you to book a blood test, please telephone the surgery and a Receptionist will offer you an appointment with one of our Phlebotomists. Please note these cannot be booked more than two weeks ahead.

 Salisbury District Hospital also run a blood clinic from 8am to 5pm. You do not need to book an appointment but you will need to collect a blood test form from our surgery and take it with you.

Diabeties Clinic

Dedicated clinics are run by our Diabetic Nurses.

New patients will need to make an initial appointment to see the doctor before being followed up in the clinic. If these clinics are not suitable the nurse can book you into a time that is convenient.

 

Ear Irrigation

Due to COVID-19, we will not be offering ear irrigation at any of our surgeries as this is considered to be an aerosol generating procedure.

Health Check

You'll be invited for an NHS Health Check every five years if you are between 40 and 74 years old, as long as you don't have an existing vascular condition. We will write to you, inviting you to make an appointment for this check.

The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.

By taking early action, you can improve your health and prevent the onset of these conditions; there is good evidence of this.

The check is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight, and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol and glucose levels.

Following the check you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy. 

 

Seasonal Vaccinations

Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.

Our first flu clinic of the year will take place in September. Please telephone the surgery in September to find out more. 

 

Smoking Cessation

All patients who are smokers are encouraged to stop smoking. The practice nurses are trained to support patients who wish to stop.

We have a high number of patients not attending these appointments, which means those patients who want to stop smoking are finding it difficult to book an early appointment. We would be grateful if you could help us by cancelling any appointment you cannot make.

Weight advice, focusing on healthy living and weight management. Nurses can refer you to specialist organisations for help.
