Global Blood Bottle Shortage

Due to a Global Shortage of blood bottles, all GP Surgeries, Hospitals and Community Services have been asked by NHS England to only undertake clinically urgent blood tests until mid-September 2021.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause as some tests will need to be delayed.

If your clinician thinks that a blood test is clinically immediately necessary, it will still be done.

As soon as we have been informed that we can resume normal service we will let you know.

Thank you.
