Why has my Blood Test appointment been cancelled?
My test is urgent, what do I do?
Due to a national shortage of blood collection tubes, many blood test clinics are now cancelling routine or non-urgent blood test appointments.
Routine Blood Tests
- If your blood test is for routine blood tests at any of the UHCW, North Middlesex, Northampton General or UHDB hospitals & pharmacies, your appointment may be cancelled. You will be advised to rebook on-line for a later date.
- This is a national shortage so may affect more hospitals other than the above named Trusts.
Urgent Blood Tests
- If your blood test is classed as urgent, please contact your Hospital Consultant who can arrange this for you or advise you on what to do.
Unsure whether your test is urgent / routine?
- If you are not sure if your blood test is urgent, please check with your GP or Consultant who will be able to advise you on this.-
The Blood Test clinics apologise sincerely for this inconvenience and hope this will be resolved soon.
