There is currently a national shortage of blood bottles which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021. This is affecting every healthcare service provider across the UK.
We have therefore been told by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests.
- Review all of the required blood tests to determine those that can be safely delayed
- Advise you if we feel that you urgently require having blood taken to assist your treatment
- Ask patients to call us for an update on booking routine blood tests after 17th September, this includes annual or quarterly reviews
- Advise you as soon as the situation changes
We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience. This is something that is completely out of our control.
