National blood sample bottle shortage

30th August 2021

There is a national shortage of blood test bottles which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021, affecting all healthcare providers. The NHS have instructed us to cancel all non-urgent blood tests. Please do not contact us to book a routine/non-urgent blood test. If you already have an appointment booked, you may be contacted to have this deferred. Our GP's will clinically assess any medical need for any urgent blood tests and will allocate you an appointment if its required. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience.
