Act F.A.S.T. Stroke Campaign

The Act F.A.S.T. campaign raises awareness for the signs of stroke and reinforces the importance of acting F.A.S.T. and calling 999 if you  notice any single one of the signs in yourself or others. The F.A.S.T. acronym is a simple test to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke  and emphasises the importance of acting quickly by calling 999.

Face - has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?

Arms - can they raise both arms and keep them there?

Speech - is their speech slurred?

Time to call 999

Some patients registered with us will soon receive a questionnaire from NHS England about experiences of local health services.  The survey covers issues that concern patients, such as access to care and satisfaction with treatment.  If you receive a questionnaire please complete it and return as soon as possible.  It is really important to share your views - your response will help to improve the services offered to patients.

Royal United Hospital Blood Test Changes

Since late 2017 Royal United Hospital Bath have a new laboratory computer system. Patients who have seen a Consultant and are asked to have bloods taken in the surgery will be given the labels to bring to us indicating which bloods are required.  We will not be able to take the bloods if we do not have these labels as we will not know what bloods are needed.  We will be asking patients if they have the hospital labels before we can book them an appointment for a blood test.  Patients will need to get the label from the hospital and no appointment for bloods can be given until they have the label.
