National reagent issue – cancellation of patient blood tests

There is currently a national issue relating to the supply of specific reagents to our laboratories which is affecting our testing capacity for biochemistry samples.

The shortage is impacting our ability to carry out biochemistry tests and therefore we must prioritise CRITICALLY URGENT tests only. We have been advised that this issue may last up to 3 weeks.

Unfortunately, due to the above, we must cancel your appointment for your blood test until at least the 2nd November 2020. Can you please contact the surgery after that date to rebook your blood test appointments.

Thank you.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
Kind Regards

Orchard House Surgery Staff
