Blood Test Policy

Our Nursing team are only authorised to undertake blood tests agreed by a GP from Merrow Park Surgery, if you have a blood form from your NHS consultant or for ongoing monitoring.

We cannot undertake blood tests on behalf of your dentist or private consultant without additional authorisation from a GP.

Please make sure that you have this authorisation for the test before booking a blood test appointment at Merrow Park Surgery.

If you attend an appointment for a blood test that has not been authorised you will be asked to book a telephone appointment with a GP to authorise your test, where appropriate. This is to ensure that the appropriate test or tests are done.

Thank you,

Jo Stephenson

Practice Manager on Behalf of the Partners at Merrow Park Surgery
