Blood tests

Due to the continued national blood tube shortage, we will be continuing to reschedule more non-urgent blood testing appointments. We are reviewing this situation on a daily basis and urgent blood testing will continue.

If you believe your appointment is urgent, please speak to your referring Clinician. If you are a GP or patient who needs to book an urgent blood taking appointment please phone 01536 494494.

Please do not use this phone line to enquire about non-urgent appointments.

Our intention is to ensure all appointments can be re-booked as soon as blood tube supplies become available.

If your condition worsens please contact NHS 111.
