DISRUPTION OF BLOOD TESTS
Posted on 16 Sep 2021
Due to international shortages of blood bottles, NHS England have advised to suspend non essential blood tests.
Our clinicians and their teams are working with our colleagues in Dorset to be more efficient ensuring we don't waste any bottles and tests are not duplicated.
We would like to reassure our patients that this disruption will not affect any essential blood tests and tests that have been delayed will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
We will continue to provide updates and would like to thank you for your patience and your support.
