Blood sampling shortage

Posted by: rebeccajackson6 - 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.

We have therefore been told by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests.
We will:
• Review all of the required blood tests to
determine those that can safely be delayed
• Advise you if we feel that you urgently require
having blood taken to assist your treatment
• Add your name to a waiting list to rearrange your
blood test
• Advise you when the situation changes

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience. This is something that is completely out of our control.
