Routine Blood Tests Postponed

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one, but only where your clinician feels that it is appropriate to do so. You may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.

If you have any queries, or feel that your blood test is urgent, then please feel free to contact us.

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
