Latest News

Welcome to Burbage Surgery

Suspension of Blood Tests

All Primary Care and Community testing will be suspended until 17th September 2021 except for clinically urgent testing. This is due to a national shortage of blood tube supplies.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it is safe to do so, you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date or your appointment rescheduled.

Given the nature of the shortage, we are unable to give an exact date when supplies will be reinstated  or for when your blood test can be rescheduled. Please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test and we will be rebooking your test when supplies become more easily available.

We are presently trialling an automated booking system and will release further information once the system is fully operational.

 

 NHS Digital Data Extraction

Further to the announcement made on 8th June 2021 the implementation of GP Data for Planning and Research has been deferred to provide more time to speak with patients, doctors, health charities and others. The Data Provision Notice has therefore been withdrawn and no action is required by GP practices or GP system suppliers at this time.

 

Covid Vaccination Certificates

We are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.

Please see
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHSapp which is also valuable for accessing your health records and ordering repeat prescriptions

Alternatively you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you.

All eligible Patients have now been called in the priority groups defined by NHS England. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have not been called for your first vaccination.
