Primary Care Services
There are other services provided by our nurses and other professionals to complement the medical work of the doctors:
During the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the practice is adhering to British Society for Haematology (BSH) guidelines which advise that "Liver stores last for a year and hence levels of B12 will not be affected if one or two 3xmonthly injection is omitted in patients on maintenance parenteral B12 supplements. BSH supports omitting B12 injections even in this group [not thought to be diet related] during COVID19 outbreak at least until the surge has passed."
