Surgery updates 

Suspension of routine blood tests.
Due to a national shortage of supplies the surgery will be suspending blood tests for the time being, unless urgently requested by a clinician. This is a nation wide problem and through no decision of the surgery . We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Antibiotic Amnesty  
Do you have any unused or old antibiotics at home? We are asking you to return them to any local pharmacy as part of an Antibiotic Amnesty in support World Antibiotic Awareness Week (18-24 November).
Antibiotics are important medicines for treating bacterial infections but the more they are used the more bacteria are able to find ways to survive the antibiotic. This is known as antibiotic resistance and is a huge threat to our future health. Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Setting broken bones, operations and treatments for cancer all rely on access to antibiotics that work. You should only take antibiotics when they have been prescribed for you by a healthcare professional. Unless your doctor or nurse has specifically told you to, you should never save antibiotics for later, and never share them with others.
You can play your part in protecting antibiotics for the future by returning unused or old antibiotics to any local pharmacy.
River Brook is also encouraging all our staff and patients to become Antibiotic Guardians and choose a pledge to help protect these vital medicines.
