All Shore Medical routine and non-urgent phlebotomy clinics are temporarily suspended.

Please note that for Thursday 15th, Friday 16th, Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th October we unfortunately are unable to offer any non-urgent blood tests appointments.

This is due to a national shortage of biochemical reagents in Dorset meaning our local labs in Bournemouth and Poole Hospital are unable to process any bloods.

If you currently have a blood test booked in at one of our surgeries, we will contact you to let you know it has been cancelled, you will then be added to a waiting list and we will rebook your appointment as soon as we can.

Any new requests for routine blood test appointments will also be added to the waiting list and you will be contacted as soon as we are ready to do them again.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
