Urgent news about blood tests
The national shortage of blood bottles is ongoing but improving a further update is expected in early October. This is affecting every healthcare service provider.
We have therefore been told by the NHS that we can restart some non-urgent blood tests these are blood tests for Diabetic checks and Heart & Wellness checks.
We will still:
- 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 completely out of our control.
