Samples, Blood Tests, X-Rays and Screening including information for Trans people

If a clinician asks you to bring a sample into surgery, whether this be urine (wee), faeces (poo), sputum (rubbish that you cough up from your chest) or nail clippings, these need to be handed into the surgery in the correct bottles before 11am in the week. No samples are taken over a weekend.

Please ask at reception for a sample bottle and bag, and remember to include your paperwork when dropping off your sample.

Blood tests can be done at the surgery for over 65s. If you are under 65 you will need to visit one of the outreach clinics. There are appointment only and walk in clinics available in various locations, please ask at reception for a leaflet.

X-rays can be done using the walk in service at Cobridge or the Haywood hospital, occasionally you will be given a form for this but usually the request is completed online and you just need to turn up.
