Blood Specimen Collection Supply Disruption

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests. NHS England have therefore issued guidance to GPs that all non-urgent blood tests should be halted.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one, but where your GP recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled. 

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact us as you would normally.

Cancellations

Once you have been given an appmt time, please ensure you are available for the GP or nurse for telephone consultations. Demand on clinician time is very high currently, and not being available or Non-attendance of booked appointments is a waste of valuable time which increases the general waiting time for an appointment. Patients are expected to give advanced notice (at least 30 minutes) if they are unable to attend. Repeated failure to do this will lead to removal from our list.
