Important Patient Information about Blood Tests

There is a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one. But where it’s safe to do so, your appointment may be rescheduled.

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but if your condition or symptoms require it, you will get a test.

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.

Thank you
