From Monday 12th October blood test appointments have been suspended at Gilbert Hitchcock House. There is a national issue all pathology laboratories are experiencing with supply shortages, which is severely restricting testing, which you may have read about in the national media.
The practice has also had to stop all routine blood test appointments that we would do within the practice, and we are now only able to do clinically urgent tests due to the level of restrictions that the lab has to work with.
Current indications are that this issue may last for up to 3 weeks.
We will update this information as we know more, as this is an evolving situation.
