Blood Tubes Shortage

No photo description available.

You may have already heard that there is a global shortage of blood tubes and we have been asked to halt all blood tests except those life-saving ones. We are asking all our patients to avoid attending for a blood test until at least the end of September, unless otherwise instructed by a Clinician. Please follow this website or our Facebook page for updates.

19th July - Changes

As mask wearing becomes optional and restrictions are lifted on 19th July, we must stress that the current rules will remain in force in Prospect House for the time being.
The number of infections is steeply rising and we must continue to protect the vulnerable patients and staff to minimise any disruption to our service.

We will still require patients and visitors to wear face coverings (or a face shields), socially distance and use hand sanitising stations around the building. Our clinicians will see you in full PPE.

From Monday all Weavers Medical and Eskdaill Medical patients will use the front door (Entrance 1) as entrance and exit. Entrance 2 (car park side) will only be in use for patients of the Dermatology department.

Please stay at home if you have a cough OR fever OR loss/change in sense of taste/smell

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
