Shortage of Blood Bottles – Routine Blood Tests

Due to a national shortage of blood testing bottles we have been asked by the NHS to reduce blood test appointments.

With immediate effect we will only be able to offer blood testing in clinically urgent situations such as:

  • For an urgent referral.
  • For safe prescription of medication.
  • To help assess and prevent admission or referral to hospital.

You may be contacted to defer your test. We are currently unable to rebook as we do not know when the issue will be resolved – hopefully by mid-October.

Thank you for your patience.
