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
