Shortage of supply of test tubes for blood samples Posted on 27 Aug 2021

NHS England this week issued patient safety guidance following the news that there is a shortage in the supply of test tubes for blood samples. This is having an impact on supplies to primary and secondary care across the country.
 
We have been instructed to cancel all but the most urgent blood tests.
 
We appreciate how frustrating this is but hope that you will realise that this is outside of our control.
 
We have no further information regarding how long this situation will continue, but will we keep patients updated as we receive further correspondance.
