National Shortage of Blood Tubes

All GP practices are currently affected by a national shortage of blood tubes and are taking urgent steps alongside hospitals to prioritise use for people with the greatest clinical need.  This includes testing for serious conditions such as cancer.  Because of this we will be delaying routine and non-urgent blood tests in line with national guidance and may have to cancel a number of booked appointments if necessary.  Please be assured if this happens we will reschedule once the situation has improved.  We will post updates on our website and social media as we get them.

Please do not contact us about routine blood tests unless your condition worsens or changes.  We fully understand the frustration this is likely to cause and apologise for the inconvenience.
