Temporary closure of blood testing at Queen’s Hospital
13 August 2019
Due to essential works the blood testing service at Queen’s Hospital will be closed 7am - 9am on Tuesday 20 August.
Blood tests should begin from 9am, and patients are asked not to arrive before this.
Patients needing a blood test during this time, particularly if fasting, can find a list of alternative locations by visiting www.bhrhospitals.nhs.uk/blood-tests.
Please be aware that once a prescription request has been made, this cannot be easily altered. For example a change to the amount of tablets you require. Please request any changes when you order your next prescription. Thank you
Contraceptive Pill Check and HRT
Please be aware that you will need to book an appointment with a GP or Nurse to get a repeat prescription of the contraceptive pill or HRT. Thank you

Clinicians and staff now have the ability to text you information about your test results etc. Please ensure the mobile telephone number we have for you is up to date.
You have the option to opt out of receiving information from the practice via text, please speak to a receptionist when you visit the surgery.
TEXT MESSAGING SERVICE
If you receive a text message from Maylands asking you to book an appointment or asking for non clinical information such as, how many units a week you drink, please be aware that these texts are NOT a scam. They have been sent from us to ascertain that the information we have on you is correct or to ask to you make an appointment - especially if we are having difficulty contacting you.
Please ensure that you inform the surgery if you change your mobile telephone number. Thank you

Junior Life Skills
Maylands Healthcare supports safety education for young people.
Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and illness among children aged one to 14 years, and causes more children to be admitted to hospital each year than for any other reason. Education and advocacy are vital to any safety initiative, and the continued support of the business community will help us to achieve our mission to reduce the number of child victims
Child Safety Campaign
We would like to thank the patients and staff of Maylands Healthcare who have helped us raise a huge £2138.00 for St Francis Hospice.
This brings our fund raising total to an amazing £17,436.00
Well done and thank you
From March 2019 we will once again be streamlining the appointment system and in conjunction with updating the telephone system, we are hoping that patients won't experience the difficulties that they have been trying to get through and book an appointment. Any feedback is welcomed. Thank you.
Please note - the surgery can only prescribe medication on line that is listed on your repeat prescription. The contraceptive pill and HRT cannot be put on a repeat prescription.
Please note the surgery will be closed on the following afternoons for staff training.
