The Downland Practice have made the following announcement regarding patient blood tests.

The Downland Practice have very recently recruited a Health Care Assistant (HCA) to help undertake routine bloods for our patients. The person we have recruited for this role has had a family changing experience and they have resigned as a HCA so they can attend to family matters. This week (beginning Nov 15) will see a large number of booked blood test appointments being cancelled and patients advised to book their blood test at the West Berkshire Community Hospital in Newbury. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to patients, we will be recruiting for a new HCA very soon.
