IMPORTANT NOTICE – Blood Tests in September

As you may have heard in the news, there is a national shortage of the vials in which we collect your blood samples. Because of this we are being forced to postpone all routine and non-urgent blood tests for the whole of September.

As we are sure you will appreciate, this will put increased strain on the team during the winter months as we then try to catch up with our long term condition reviews as well as flu vaccines and the likely Covid boosters. Please rest assured we will do everything we can to keep you updated as to when normal service resumes. Sadly, this is something over which we have no control.

Please note, that if you already have an appointment booked, your appointment will still stand. We will not be cancelling any appointments already booked for September.
