NHS England have contacted GP practices to inform us of a nationwide shortage of blood collection tubes.

We have been instructed by NHSE to halt all routine blood tests until at least 17th September.

Any urgent blood tests will still be carried out.

Staff at the surgery will be going through those appointments already booked to see which ones can still go ahead.

We will be contacting patients in due course if a booked appointment needs to be cancelled.

This is totally out of our control and we are very sorry for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
