Blood testing – a message for patients

Problems with an NHS supplier Roche has led to a temporary shortage in some of the chemicals used to process test results. Roche are working urgently to resolve this.

All tests for patients in Northamptonshire are continuing as normal so please attend your appointment as requested. If your appointment needs to be cancelled, you will be contacted. 

We are doing everything we can to reduce the impact on patients, including working locally with other NHS organisations so these chemicals can be shared wherever possible.
