There is a national shortage of blood bottles which is expected to last until 17th September 2021. This is affecting every healthcare service provider. We have therefore been told by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests. Please read the important information here.
Currently we at Ashburton are being asked to prioritise what bloods we can do as a Practice. Unfortunately this will mean that some routine blood tests i.e. for annual reviews may have to be postponed ensuring there is enough supply for those patients at higher risk.
Please note that routine tests will only be deferred if clinically safe to do so. You do not need to contact the Practice if there is a change to your appointment, we will be in touch.
Thank you for your understanding.
