🩺💉NATIONAL SHORTAGES- Important changes to routine and non-urgent blood test appointments 💉🩺
All GP practices are affected by the current national shortage of blood tubes and are taking urgent steps alongside our hospitals to prioritise their use for people with the greatest clinical need. This includes testing for serious conditions such as cancer.
We are following national guidance which has been issued in response to the shortage. As a result, we need to cancel and delay a number of patient appointments for blood tests deemed routine or non-urgent. If you have a routine blood test appointment the reception team at the surgery will be in touch directly if they need to cancel your appointment, this will be by phone or by text message.
Please be assured that appointments will be rescheduled once the situation has improved, and in line with national guidance. There are a few things you can do if you are affected by this change:
Keep checking our website for regular updates – we will be sharing the latest patient information here as soon as we receive it.
Check your phone for messages from us – we will also be using our patient text service to keep people informed.
Please don’t call or contact us with questions about routine blood tests – we are experiencing exceptional levels of demand at the moment, and your cooperation will help us to reach those without smartphone or internet access with this critical information.
Do get in touch online if your condition worsens or changes so that we can prioritise your blood test if necessary following clinical review. Please use eConsult where possible (via the NHS APP or the link on our website).
The changes are likely to be in place for at least four weeks. We will keep all our patients regularly updated as the national situation changes. We fully understand the frustration this is likely to cause, and apologise for the inconvenience.
WE ARE NOW LIVE ON THE NATIONAL BOOKING SYSTEM!

Breast Screening Programme
Women in the Perranporth area aged between 50 and 70 will shortly be invited for breast screening.
We know that if breast cancer is detected early, treatment is more successful and there is a good chance of survival.
Locally, huge efforts have been made to safely restore the breast screening service which had previously been impacted by the pandemic.
As a practice, we strongly support breast screening programme and urge women to attend when invited.
If you are not in this age group but have noticed changes in your breast such as lumps, skin changes, a newly inverted nipple or nipple discharge [especially 1 sided], please make an appointment with one of our doctors.
