Blood bottle shortage

We have been notified by NHS England that all non-urgent blood tests are to be suspended until mid-September amid a national shortage of blood bottles.

We have started a process of prioritizing blood tests in light of the critical situation across the whole UK with blood bottles.

Each request is being reviewed by our GPs and will be postponed only if safe to do so.

Sadly the bottle supply situation is not under our control but we would like to apologise for the inconvenience this will have caused.

We will provide you with updates regarding this when possible and appreciate your patience and support as always.
