National shortage of blood collection tubes

The NHS is currently experiencing a significant stock shortage of blood testing tubes. This is a national problem due to an international shortage triggered by suppliers and a shortage of raw materials.

For Patients needing a blood test please ring reception and we will place you on the waiting list which will be triaged daily by one of our Nurses. Our Nurses will be in touch to then book you in where appropriate. We apologise in advance for the delay this may cause however we will try our best to accommodate patients where practically possible.
