Distance stated on 'services' sign misleading

On the A1 Northbound carriageway there is a sign stating 'Blyth Services 2/3m' indicating that the turn off for the services is 2/3 mile ahead. However the sign is located only about 250yds from the slip road (between the 300yd and 200 yd countdown markers). As a result drivers seeking the services may be unprepared to enter this slip road believing there is a further access downstream to the services ahead.
