Blood Tube Shortage

There is currently an international shortage of blood bottles, affecting blood tests in both the hospital and in the community and primary care. As a result of the shortage, all GP’s have been told to suspend/cancel all non-urgent blood tests.

Our GP’s are working together through this incident to determine the urgency of each individual blood test either booked or required.

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when tests will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test.

We thank you for your understanding.
