CORONAVIRUS - Practice information.

The surgery is limiting the number of patients in the waiting room at any time. If you have an appointment, please use the intercom in the porch and reception will let you in.

We have also left a box in the porch for prescription requests and samples, so you do not need to come into the surgery to drop these off. There are spare sample pots and paper for prescription requests here too.

You can also order medication via the Patient Access or MyGp App on your computer or smart phone. Alternatively, click on the 'prescription' tab above to email us your prescription request.

Please be considerate to all our staff during this time as we are trying our best to help all of our patients, while keeping safe ourselves.

Many thanks 

Manor Health Centre. 

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A 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. and 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.
