There is a UK-wide shortage of blood bottles for taking blood tests, and this is going to affect the service offered by the practice. All practices have been asked by Welsh Government and Aneurin Bevan University Health Board to prioritise blood tests for the most urgently ill patients and reduce routine blood monitoring where possible. As a consequence, we may need to postpone your blood tests for a number of weeks, however, please be assured that the decision to postpone any blood test for a patient will only be made on clinical grounds by the medical staff. Should your blood test be delayed, we will contact you when the shortage of blood bottles has been resolved and your test can be undertaken.
Thank your for your understanding and patience.
