A phlebotomist from Swansea NHS Trust attends the Norton surgery on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Patients must make appointments prior to attendance. Unfortunately, because of the demand for this service we are unable to accommodate patients requiring regular blood tests for Warfarin monitoring.
Please bring specimens to the surgery on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings only before 11.00 or take them directly to Singleton Path Lab.
Please call between 2.00pm - 5.00pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times. There maybe times when the receptionist maynot be able to answer any clinical questions and you maybe asked to call back to speak to a practice nurse.
Note that 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.
