Important Patient Information relating to Blood Tests

Blood Specimen bottle collection supply disruption

Due to a national shortage of blood specimen collection bottles and in order to manage demand, NHS England have issued guidance which will significantly restrict our capacity to do blood tests.

All but clinically urgent testing must be halted. NHS England guidance advises it is too premature to give a definite reschedule date at this point.

It is important that patients understand that in delaying or deferring blood tests the GP’s are following NHS Guidance.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
