Blood Test Restrictions Update

We have been informed that the restrictions on routine blood tests due to supply issues of the blood specimen bottles can ease with immediate effect. We are still being asked to take care with tests that are ordered and to be as efficient as possible.

Therefore if you are aware that you need certain routine blood tests at different points in the year – it would be more efficient and less wasteful to have these all done at the same time. Please discuss this with the nurse or GP that you are seeing.
