Urgent News - Blood Bottle Shortage

NHS England have asked all hospitals and GP practices to stop all non-essential blood tests with immediate effect. This is due to a problem with the supply chain producing the bottles. They are working to resolve this issue and we will do our best to prioritise which tests we can continue with. We are down to a few dozen bottles per day and it is imperative we use these appropriately so please be understanding and patient with us.

Blood bottle shortage: Latest updates - w/c 25th October

We now have a better supply of blood bottles available at the practice. If you have been advised to have bloods in recent months, these can now be booked. Please be aware that there will likely to be some delays whilst we deal with the backlog.
