Delays to routine blood tests

Due to an unexpected shortage of essential materials needed to process blood tests, supplied by Roche Pharmaceuticals, it is not possible to undertake some routine blood tests at the present time.

This is a UK-wide problem which Welsh Government and Welsh Health Boards are working urgently to resolve but cannot give a date for this.

The surgery will be contacting everybody who this will be affecting to postpone their appointments. Please do not ring up to make an appointment for bloods unless it is urgent.

We sincerely apologise if your test has been delayed or needs to be repeated.
