Please note, everyday blood tests will be taken between 08:00-09:30 and 12:00-13:00 with the exception of Wednesday when the last blood test will be at 12:45 as we are closed between 13:00-14:00 for training.

Urine/Stool Samples

If you have been asked to give a urine or stool sample, please ensure that they have been brought back into the surgery before 10:15. This will ensure that they will get to the hospital on the same day.

Any brought in after this time will have to be repeated ready for the following days collection.
