Update on global shortage of blood tests equipment – what it means for patients
A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
Between the 22nd July and the 22 October Dr Barter is going to attempt to swim 66 miles which is the equivalent of swimming the channel 3x to raise money for diabetes uk. You can find her fund-raising page on the following link if you would like to make a donation. https://swim22.diabetes.org.uk/fundraising/dr-chloe-g-barter
Good luck Dr Barter!!

Important information for ladies aged 68-71 not receiving invitations for breast cancer screening (as seen on the news)
All women affected will now be contacted by letter by the end of May and those under 72 will receive an appointment for a catch-up mammogram.
Women aged over 72 can contact a helpline to talk through the pros and cons of having breast screening – scans in older women sometimes pick up cancers which do not require treatment.
What to do if you’re affected?
- Call the breast screening helpline number 0800 169 2692
- Go the NHS Choices website for more information
- You should receive a letter by the end of May
The NHS has introduced an electronic record called the Summary care record (SCR), which will be used to support your emergency care. Please see www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or ask at the surgery for a leaflet that will give you more information and your choices about having a Summary Care Record.
