Blood Bottle Shortage Posted on 27 Aug 2021

There is currently a NATIONAL shortage of blood bottles. 

We have been instructed by NHS England to restrict blood tests to those that are clinically urgent Hospital/GP requests, with immediate effect.  

If you have recently received a text or letter regarding your medication review or long term conditions review, could we please ask that you do not contact us at this time and we will be in touch again when we can resume to normal service.

Thank you for your understanding over this frustrating situation. 

If we have to contact you to cancel a booked appointment then as mentioned above, we will re-book you as soon as possible. 

Many thanks
