There is a UK-wide shortage of blood bottles for taking blood tests, and this is going to affect the service offered by Brecon Medical Group Practice. All practices have been asked by the Welsh Government and Health Board to prioritise blood tests for the most urgently ill patients and reduce routine blood monitoring where possible.
As a consequence, we may need to postpone your blood tests for a number of weeks, however, please be assured that the decision to postpone any blood test for a patient will only be made on clinical grounds by the medical staff.
Should your blood test be deferred, we ask that you make contact with the practice in 2 months time when we hope the shortage of blood bottles will be resolved and your test can be booked.
Thank you for your understanding
