Routine Blood Tests Suspended – 7th October 2020

We are sorry to announce that with immediate effect, routine blood tests are suspended. This unfortunately includes patients who already have a routine blood test booked. If your blood test is clinically urgent, it will still take place, and we are contacting patients directly.

This is due to a nationwide supply issue with the chemicals (reagents) needed by the laboratory to analyse blood samples. It is therefore necessary for clinically urgent blood tests to be prioritised.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this will cause and thank you for your patience and understanding. Further updates will be posted as and when we receive them.​
