YOU MUST WAIT TO SEE THE NURSE.

IF YOU WISH TO LEAVE A FAECES, SPUTUM OR URINE PREGNANCY TEST THAT HAS NOT BEEN REQUESTED BY A GP YOU MUST REPORT TO YOUR GP’S RECEPTIONIST.

URINE SAMPLES – WHY ARE WE CHANGING THE SYSTEM?

EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT BACTERIAL RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS IS INCREASING AND THEREFORE INFECTIONS INCLUDING URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS SHOULD ONLY BE TREATED IF YOU ARE UNWELL AND SYMPTOMATIC 

PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.
