Blood Bottle Shortage

Published 31/08/2021

There is a European problem with the supply of bottles for blood samples. This is affecting all medical services in Europe. In order to make sure that seriously ill patients with cancer, sepsis, etc. can have the blood tests they need, we are having to defer some routine blood tests. This should take about 3 months to resolve.

All decisions to defer have been made by a senior GP and we will be in touch as soon as possible to re-arrange appointments that have had to be deferred.

Thank you for your patience.
