Willows & Mottingham phlebotomy clinics will close end March 2020
Phlebotomy Position Statement bromley CCG 11.2.20:
The GP practices in your area had an arrangement with Bromley Healthcare to provide phlebotomy at the Willows Clinic and Kimmeridge Road clinic. Bromley Healthcare decided it was necessary to redeploy their phlebotomy staff to their home visiting service and this decision means they will no longer be able to run the clinics in Chislehurst and Mottingham. The CCG is in discussion with the practices affected and our healthcare partners on plans to maintain local access to a blood test. We hope to be in a position to announce arrangements by the end of February and this will be communicated to GPs once they are confirmed. We will also confirm details via the CCG website and leaflets will also be available in GP Practices and phlebotomy waiting areas.
Flu Vaccinations for all eligible patients are still available
- Electronic Repeat Dispensing
Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. This information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.

The Practice is currently one healthcare assistant understaffed. We are trying to recruit to fill this position.Please accept our apologies for delays in appointment booking during this time of reduced availability
Last year in Bromley we spent over £2 million on prescriptions for self care products available over the counter.
Many common conditions and minor ailments can be treated at home with the support of your local pharmacy if needed.
Over the counter products for self care are for things like pain relief, hayfever, cold sores, cough and colds.
These items can be bought from pharmacies and supermarkets without a prescription. You can get them without an appointment or seeing a GP.
This practice is unable to routinely prescribe health supplements and medicines for self-care that can be bought readily from pharmacies and supermarkets without a prescription.
