There is currently a national shortage of blood tubes. Over the next few weeks we will only be doing urgent blood tests and will be deferring routine tests for some weeks. if you have an appointment already booked, we will contact you if we need to cancel.
We will let you know what is happening as soon as we have news on blood tube deliveries.
Our prescriptions team are extending the number of repeats to make sure patients have the medication they need.
We are really sorry for the inconvenience and will be restarting phlebotomy as soon as the tubes are available.
Best wishes, Dr Kate Grantham.
