Further Communication relating to Supply Disruption of Blood Tubes

As per previous communications relating to Becton Dickinson blood tube supplies, and in-line with the most recent national guidance, we are continuing to pause our non-urgent blood clinics until further notice. All clinically urgent testing will continue.

Examples of clinically urgent testing include:

  • Bloods that are required to facilitate a two week wait referral
  • Bloods that are extremely overdue and/or essential for safe prescribing of medication or monitoring of condition
  • Bloods that if taken could avoid a hospital admission or prevent an onward referral
  • Those with suspected sepsis or conditions with a risk of death or disability
