We have received confirmation that we can now go ahead with routine blood tests. Any patients who had blood tests cancelled due to the below supply issue will be contacted by the surgery to rearrange their blood tests.
Unfortunately there is a national problem with the chemicals used by laboratories when testing blood samples.
So, with immediate effect, we have been informed to pause routine testing of blood samples. We do not know when a normal service will resume.
Regrettably we will have to contact many patients to cancel their blood test appointments. We recognise this will cause frustration and anxiety and apologise for this but this situation is completely outside the practice's control.
The Department of Health is looking into this and we will keep you updated once we have more information.
Patients who require urgent blood tests will be prioritised by the clinical team.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
The team at the University of Lincoln Health Service would like to send our support and best wishes to all those affected by the current Coronavirus situation.

If you need to come into the surgery for any reason, please wear a face covering. The covering could be as simple as a bandana or scarf that you use to cover your nose and mouth. Thank you for your continuing efforts to keep yourselves and our NHS staff safe. For guidance on face coverings and how to make one, please go to the following link:
