Gladstone Surgery would like to announce that Dr Katherine O'Brien is leaving the practice on the 2nd May 2019. We wish her well and know that she will be missed by patients.
Patients that are currently registered with Dr O'Brien will be allocated a new accountable GP, either Dr Morrell or Dr Bhupal.
Check with a member of the team when you next visit the surgery, however you will still be able to see a doctor of your choice.
CONTACT THE PATIENT GROUP DIRECTLY
Do you have an idea for an improvement or a concern that you would like to discuss with the Gladstone Patient Participation Group directly? (Rather than speak to surgery staff?) Then please contact them here: email@example.com

The surgery understands it can be difficult for commuters to come to the surgery for routine problems when they work away from home. Therefore extended hour appointments are available on selected week day evenings (usually Monday and Wednesday). Please enquire at reception. From 1st October 2018 the surgery will also be offering additional afternoon/evening and Saturday appointments in conjunction with other surgeries in the locality. Please see the appointment page for more information.

You are welcome to call after 2.30pm to enquire about your test results as our staff will have more time to help you at this time. On average blood test results take 4-5 days to reach us and X-ray results take 10 days.
If you are asked to provide any form of specimen for testing kindly request the appropriate specimen container from reception or from the nursing staff. Please ensure you write both your full name and date of birth clearly on the container label and, in the interests of hygiene, place the specimen container in a sealable bag before handing it in at reception.
You will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results at the time of your test so please bear this in mind before calling. It is then your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
A 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:
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist, nurse or health care assistant 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.
An X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.
If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.
An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
