Tests and Results

Your test results

Please call after 2pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request and liaise with clinicians after the morning surgery has finished. Please note, the practice is CLOSED from 1pm on Wednesdays.

The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.

Blood tests

A 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. 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.

New Patients

New patient registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please note, we take patients from Mossley, Carrbrook and parts of Heyrod.

If you wish to register at the surgery you will be offered a new patient health check. This appointment must be kept as we will not register you as a patient until the health check has been done.

When you register, you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. 


Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions

Please give 48 hours notice. We only accept written requests.

If possible, please use the repeat form issued with your prescription: phone requests (from housebound patients only) after 12.00pm please.

Prescriptions charges and exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £7.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website

Appointments

Appointments

We run an appointment system and ask all patients to call or phone for appointments which are all for 10 minutes. If you feel that you may need longer, please inform the receptionist when making your appointment.

All emergency appointments are seen and triaged by the nurse practitioner.

You can make appointments at the reception desk or by phone. Please keep appointments or phone to cancel them in good time to avoid wasting the opportunity for someone else to be seen.

Home visits

If possible, please try and telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember, several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the health centre.
