Blood test bottle shortage

Posted by: Simon Sherwin - Posted on:

Unfortunately due to a national shortage in blood test bottles, NHS England has advised GPs to temporarily stop all non-urgent blood testing, at least until the 17th September.

We cannot give an exact date for when testing will be able to restart but please be reassured that if your condition is urgent or your symptoms require it, we will be able to provide a test. Non-urgent blood tests will be temporarily delayed.

If your condition or symptoms change, or your illness gets worse, please contact us in the usual way. We remain open and continue to provide care so please continue to contact us if you have concerns about your health. Thank you for understanding.
