The health and care partnership for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, Together We’re Better, is holding five maternity focus groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent over the coming month. We want to speak to new and expectant mothers, as well as anyone planning on having a baby and those working in maternity services, to listen to their views of maternity services across the patch.

The feedback gathered at these sessions will help us to shape local maternity services for the future.

We are asking that people register for a place via this registration form: https://nhs.researchfeedback.net/s.asp?k=157562410362. Spaces are limited, so we would urge people to register sooner rather than later.

More information can be found on the Together We’re Better website: https://www.twbstaffsandstoke.org.uk/news-and-events/308-help-shape-the-future-of-maternity-services-in-staffordshire-and-stoke-on-trent. If you have any questions please email TWBcomms@staffordshire.gov.uk.

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
