BLOOD TEST UPDATE - 31st August 2021

Due to a national shortage of blood bottles, NHS England have advised to postpone all non-clinically urgent blood tests.  Any patient who needs a test for an urgent health problem will still get one.  But if your GP recommends it is safe to do so, you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date or your appointment may be rescheduled.  We are unable to give an exact date when this will be, but we will re-book your test when supplies become more easily available.  If your condition or symptoms change or get worse please contact the surgery.
