Routine and non-urgent blood tests – All GP practices are affected by the current national shortage of blood tubes and are taking steps alongside our hospitals to prioritise the use for patients with the greatest clinical need.
We are following national guidance. As a result we will have to cancel blood tests deemed routine or non-urgent. We will contact you if we need to cancel your appointment. Please be assured your appointment will be rescheduled when the situation improves, in line with national guidance.
We apologise for any Inconvenience but hope you understand this is a national issue beyond our control.
Flu Vaccinations 2021/2022
We are going to be inviting eligible patients to book their flu vaccination at the practice in the coming weeks. Our first vaccines are due to arrive in the week commencing 20th September and we will start holding clinics after this week.
Due to the pandemic, our clinics will run as last year with booked appointments, which will be made available to book online, as well as by telephone. PLEASE DON’T CALL US YET. Look out for our flu posters, information on our website and our text messages.
If you have a smart phone and a form of valid photo ID please consider downloading the NHS app which enables you to book appointments at the surgery. At this time, we have no confirmed information, on when Covid boosters will start to be administered.
Please ensure we have the correct contact details for you – if anything has changed please complete a change of details form to let us know so you don’t miss your invite.
Covid 19 Guidelines – Following the recent Government announcement we would like to advise our patients for the time being there will be NO CHANGES at the practice
The waiting room is open but with limited seating – please, only one person per appointment. If you have a booked appointment, you will be able to enter the surgery. You can either check in on the screen or with a receptionist and take a seat in the waiting room. The clinician will then come and get you.
Please continue to use the intercom if you are collecting a prescription from the dispensary – requests still need to be put in the post box by the front gate. For all reception queries, including booking appointments, please phone on the usual number.
If the doctor wishes to see you for a face to face appointment they will arrange this during the phone consultation
If you need to collect or drop off something at the surgery, please use the intercom to speak to Reception. While covid safety guidelines are still in place, please do not enter the surgery unless you have an appointment or are instructed to do so.
We have made this decision as often patients coming the surgery are sick and vulnerable. Continuing with the precautions will help protect everyone including the staff to ensure we can maintain our services
Thank you for your co-operation.
All the staff at Bredon Hill Surgery

Major A&E departments assess and treat patients who have serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 (or 112 which is the European Union equivalent) for emergencies, such as: loss of consciousness, pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia, acute confused state, persistent, severe chest pain or breathing difficulties. If you’re injured or seriously ill, you should go, or be taken, to A&E. Be aware that not all hospitals have an A&E department. Please only use A&E if you have a serious injury or illness.
