Message to patients from Dr McCallion

Upon my retirement, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words, cards, notes, letters and gifts.  Over the past 30 plus years I have always felt privileged to be your doctor and part of your community and lives.  Together we have come through some very expectant, worrying, sad and happy times.  Through it all I have been overwhelmed by the strength and resilience of you, our patients, and I will always value and remember the relationships we formed in the difficult and good times.

I know the practice will continue to develop and meet the challenges that will come your way.  I wish you all the best of health and time ahead. 

Thanks again for your friendship and for putting up with things when I was trying to get it right and bearing with me until I did!  You'll probably not miss the bad jokes.

Be Good!

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

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.
