Blood bottle shortage and Routine Blood Tests

Due to a national shortage of blood bottles we are currently only able to do blood tests that are deemed urgent. If you have a routine, non-urgent blood test booked with Nidderdale Group Practice, we may be contacting you to reschedule. This is because of a global shortage of the tubes we use when we take blood samples that’s affecting the NHS nationwide. Urgent tests will still go ahead. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please see the link below to the national media regarding this.
