Shortage Of Blood Testing Tubes
Due to a global shortage of blood testing tubes, NHS England have instructed all GP practices to cancel all routine and non urgent blood tests immediately.
Urgent tests will need to be authorised first by a clinician so please be mindful of this when talking to reception as they will not be able to book you in automatically.
We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England who are monitoring the situation. We are expecting this to be in place up to and including 17th September, however we will update you should this change.
If we need to cancel your blood appointment we will contact you, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
