Please remember to bring your blood form to your appointment.
When you have your test you will be told how long it will take before the results are returned to the practice.
If results are "normal" you will be notified by text message. In any other case or where SMS messaging is not available, to obtain your results please telephone the surgery on 0121 796 2777 after 2:00pm. Please be prepared to identify yourself, saying what the test was and when it was carried out.
We cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result requires further discussion, we will offer you an appointment. Due to our confidentiality and data protection policies, we will only give results to the person who has had the test.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
*Please note not all of our sites provide certain travel vaccines. Please ask at reception and you may be directed to book at an alternate site.
Please note that our nurses do sometimes get booked up, so please allow 4 weeks to get a convenient nurse appointment. Some courses of vaccinations take two or three months to complete so please take this into consideration when planning your journey. Vaccinations attracting a fee will only be given if paid for in advance, so please bring either cash or a cheque book with you to your appointment.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
