Tell us: have you been affected by blood test cuts in England?
We’d like to hear from health professionals and patients about whether they’ve been affected by blood test issues in England
An acute shortage of sample bottles has led to a limit in the number of NHS blood tests that GPs and hospitals can perform, especially in England. GPs have been told to stop doing most blood tests until mid-September, and hospitals to cut their number by 25%.
We’d like to hear from health professionals about how the limit in blood tests is affecting their patients. We’d also like to hear from patients who have been unable to secure a blood test, either at their GP or hospital. How has this rationing in blood tests affected you?
