As part of the new GP Contract NHS Lanarkshire is taking over phlebotomy services from the practice. Therefore patients will normally have bloods taken by community staff rather than practice staff. These clinics are held in the Dental Centre or Physiotherapy /Podiatry building which are co-located with the Health Centre. You will be informed of details at the time of booking your appointment.
There will be more changes across primary care services as the local Primary Care Improvement Plan (PCIP) starts to gain momentum.
