Blood collection bottle shortage

There is currently a national shortage of blood bottles. We have been told to restrict our blood testing to clinically urgent cases only, until mid-September at least. We will continue testing for the  monitoring of drugs such as methotrexate and warfarin. If you have a routine test booked, we will likely be calling to cancel this. Please be understanding that this is beyond our control and applies to every surgery and hospital in the country. Follow our website and Facebook pages for updates.
