ARRANGING A BLOOD TEST
NHS England has notified us that there is an ongoing issue with a National shortage of products for Blood Tests from the company Becton Dickinson. Whilst there are measures being taken to get alternative products to help alleviate the issue this may take time before services are fully operational again.
Due to this all Primary Care and Community testing needs to stop until the 17th September 2021, except for clinically urgent testing. Examples of clinically urgent testing include:
- Bloods that are required for any Urgent referrals
- Bloods that are extremely overdue (except annual review bloods) and/or essential for safe prescribing of medication or monitoring of a condition
- Bloods that could avoid any hospital admissions
- Those with suspected sepsis or conditions with an increased risk of death or disability
We understand that this is frustrating for patients who may already have appointments but we appreciate your co-operation during this time. For more information, follow the links below:
