URGENT NOTICE - BLOOD TESTS

The hospital has informed us that there is a national shortage of reagents used in medical laboratories. This means that only a small number of urgent bloods can be processed. We do not have a date for the return of normal services, however we have been told that it could mean a delay of a few weeks. Please be aware that this is affecting all GP practices and Hospitals throughout the country. We will be contacting patients to inform them of this who have appointments booked. Please be re-assured that urgent bloods will be processed and if the surgery feels that your bloods are urgent you will not be contacted, and you should attend for your appointment.  We appreciate your patience during this difficult time. Please be patient and remember that this is a national shortage and it is out of the surgery control. Thank you.
