We have been informed that there is a critical global shortage of blood specimen bottles.
This has resulted in the need to cancel routine blood test appointments.
Our GP’s are reviewing every patient currently booked in for a blood test to assess the clinical need for the test.
Those patients who the GP has identified as having a CLINICALLY URGENT need for the test should still attend the surgery for their appointment.
If your planned blood test is routine, or non-urgent, we will contact you to confirm the cancellation of this appointment.
Please DO NOT contact the surgery to re-arrange your appointment as we do not know when stocks will be readily available, and when we will be in a position to re-book your appointment.
We will contact you to re-arrange your appointment once the situation becomes clearer.
