Important Announcement About Blood Tests

Updated: Sep 19, 2021

There is currently a national shortage of tubes used to collect blood samples, which is expected to last until November 2021. To ensure that we are able to continue collecting urgent blood samples during this time, we are restricting the collection of routine and non-urgent samples to conserve our stocks of tubes.



If Your Blood Sample is Urgent, it Will be Collected

We are actively working with colleagues across the NHS to identify suitable alternative blood tubes globally. We are also reviewing our internal processes to further conserve the supply of tubes. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with your healthcare provider.
