Noticeboard

We are now able to send appointment reminders to your mobile phone.  Please update your mobile number when you next visit the surgery.


We are now accepting new patient registrations at the practice.


We have acquired the services of two new salaried GP's at the practice;
Dr Victoria Carradice MB ChB 2006 & Dr Sreelatha Vengala MB BS 2003,
Who will be starting at the practice in April 2017.


NOTICE
Can all patients registered at Cottingham Medical Centre please read the "PRACTICE NEWS" page under the "Further Information" column on the right-hand side of this page concerning changes to the practice in the very near future.


Please be patient with our reception staff who are trying to do their best in this very challenging period for Cottingham Medical Centre

Dr. Kieran and partners are actively trying to recruit new young Doctors to join our team following the retirement of Dr. Morgan and the resignation of Dr. George.  Unfortunately we are having to use more locum GP's to help us manage the ever incresing workload and this understandably puts a strain on everyone.

Our receptionists will always endeavour to find you an appointment which is convenient for you but unfortunately it may not be with the Doctor of your choice.

If you could bear with us the situation will hopefully get better in the not too distant future.

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.
