Further to the update we posted previously. We have been notified by NHS Lincolnshire CCG that, problems being experienced by NHS supplier Roche should now fully resolved. This will mean that GP practices will be in a position to begin booking/rescheduling routine blood tests over the coming days.
THE HEATH SURGERY WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH PATIENTS, WHO PREVIOUSLY HAD APPOINTMENTS CANCELLED.
We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.
URGENT NOTICE FOR ALL PATIENTS WHO HAVE A ROUTINE BLOOD TEST BOOKED AT THE SURGERY.
We have been informed this afternoon, that there is a national shortage of the chemicals that are needed by pathology laboratories when testing blood samples. Therefore with immediate effect, the lab have informed us that there is a pause on testing routine GP practice samples.
We are in the process of contacting all patients who have a routine blood test appointment already booked and will not be making any further bookings, until normal service has been resumed at the pathology labs.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this situation may cause and whilst this is completely out of our control, we will keep patients informed via our Facebook Page and Website.

We are pleased to announce that we have been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners as an Armed Forces Veteran Friendly GP Practice.
For the protection of our staff and patients the decision was taken that anyone attending the surgery, is politely asked to cover their face with a scarf or face mask.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
EXEMPTIONS APPLY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION WHICH WOULD MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO WEAR A MASK.
The practice currently offers patients the facility to book appointments, order prescriptions and view some of your medical record online. If you would like to take up this service please speak to a receptionist.
