Urgent news about blood tests

Posted by: kara - Posted on:

There is a national shortage of blood bottles, which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021. This is affecting every
healthcare service provider, including GP practices.

We have therefore been told by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests.

We will:
• Let you know if you are affected and when your test will be rescheduled
• Advise you if we feel that you urgently require having blood taken to assist your treatment
• Advise you when the situation changes

We are extremely sorry about this but it is completely out of our control.
