Phlebotomy Service returns to practice

A new blood testing service will be in place for all Great Yarmouth and Waveney Patients from 1st April. The new service will be available in this practice every morning Monday to Friday as pre-bookable appointments 8.30am to 11.30am.

 

Any blood tests that are requested by a GP should be undertaken at the GP practice. Patients who turn up at the James Paget drop-in service with a GP form will get their bloods tested on their first visit but will be given a flyer asking them to go to their practice for GP blood tests in future.

 

Children aged between 2 to 18 years old should be able to have their bloods taken at the GP practice, but if they require specialist intervention such as play therapist they will be referred to the Cove.

 

If you are a patient requiring regular bloods for an ongoing condition then your bloods can be taken at the hospital drop-in service or they can be done at your local GP practice.

 

 

 

If you have any concerns about the new service please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 01502 719567 or email: GYWCCGPALS@nhs.net

Dementia Research

Join dementia research

‘Join dementia research’ (www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk) is a national service that offers you the chance to register your interest in taking part in dementia research, find suitable studies in your area, and let researchers know that you might be interested in taking part in their research. The service’s development is being funded by the Department of Health and it will be delivered in a partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network, Alzheimer’s Research UK and the Alzheimer’s Society.

The service is now nationwide accross the country. 

People with dementia, their carers and anyone interested in participating in dementia research can register on to the service either online (www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk), by post or via a telephone helpline provided by the charity partners.

To register, all you need to provide is some basic contact and health information which will allow people to be broadly matched to suitable studies. Researchers wishing to use the service for recruitment and feasibility will be able to create studies, screen and approach suitable, matched volunteers.

 

Key objectives of ‘Join dementia research’:

• To increase the number of people with dementia and their carers getting involved in dementia research.

• To contribute to achieving the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge ambition for 10% of dementia patients to be involved in research.

• To increase the co-ordination, speed and efficiency of the NIHR Clinical Research Network to recruit volunteers into dementia research studies.
