Following on from previous communications to you on this, you will know that there is a global shortage of products used for blood collection and blood tests.
To preserve supplies for patients who need blood tests urgently we have been advised to reduce the number of non-clinically urgent tests as well as to delay some routine tests (where it is safe to do so). We will therefore be reviewing all patients who currently have blood tests booked and some patients will have their tests delayed.
This decision will be made by a clinician who will have access to their full notes. We will call you and let you know if this affects you.
We appreciate the inconvenience this will cause and will update you through the website as we know more.
