Blood test Issues

Blood Test Issues

There is currently a national supply issue affecting pathology consumables which has major implications for blood testing. Laboratories across the country have been receiving intermittent and/or incomplete orders and therefore, to preserve supplies, GPs can only request blood testing for urgent/essential issues until further notice.  This means we have had to cancel routine blood tests for the time-being.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but unfortunately we have no control over this issue.  We will resume normal service as soon as we are given the go-ahead.
