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.

Patient and public personalised care survey
We would like to hear ‘what matters to you’ when it comes to your health and wellbeing. Please take a look at the below survey which incorporates:
- How involved you feel in decisions about your care and treatment within the service(s) that you access.
- How your individual preferences and priorities are acknowledged by the service(s) that you access.
- What makes you feel engaged in your health and care.
- How you manage your own health and wellbeing independently.
- The resources and information you need to live well
The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/matterstoyou and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. All responses will be anonymous unless you choose to give your details.
The feedback received will be used to inform our approach, and development of our strategy.
Please complete the survey by 5pm, 29 July 2021.
Patient Participation Group
Here at Elgar House Surgery, we hold a patient participation group for any patients. Should you wish to join, your involvement would be based on ways the practice could improve overall, such as putting forward suggestions and acting as a sounding board for future surgery plans.
