Statement: National supply issue of blood sampling tubes.
You might have read in the news that there is a national supply issue for blood sampling collection tubes.
This affects our hospitals and our GP surgeries.
We are aware of this issue and are working closely with our clinical teams to ensure that we take appropriate action to manage the supply of these products at this time.
Please be assured that patients who have an urgent need to have their blood samples taken as part of their care and treatment will continue to do so.
Thank you for your support.
