Blood Testing -paused.
As you may have seen on the news there is a national problem with supplies of the diagnostics to the processing labs. This is envisaged to be for approx 2-3 weeks. The lab will only be able to process priority/urgent bloods during this time. We anticipate that routine blood tests will resume again from the beginning of November, please check for updates.
We remain open as usual for pre-booked appointments, this is to ensure we are able to maintain social distancing and reduce cross infection of COVID-19. We have a one way flow through the building to reduce the patient contact with others. (There will be an door intercom in place between 10.30-11am daily to restrict visitors) please do not attend during this time.
