01/09/2021 – Disruption to supply of blood tube products

There is currently a global shortage of blood tubes used for taking blood tests which is having a significant impact on the services we deliver. Anyone who needs a blood test for urgent health problems will still get one. However, where it’s safe to do so, your clinician may ask you to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.

If you are booked in for a blood test or are waiting for one, we are reviewing all requests to find out if it needs to be taken urgently, or if your test can wait until there are sufficient blood bottles available.

Given the nature of the shortage, they may not be able to give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, you will get a test. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

For any other issues you would like to be resolved, you can use the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). Here you can get support, advice, and information about any aspect relating to your contact with Mersey Care.

The NHS has started its COVID-19 vaccination campaign across the country. The vaccine will be rolled out to eligible patients in stages. Some of you may have already been invited for your vaccination. We will be contacting all eligible patients in stages so please bear with us. Please ensure we have your correct mobile telephone number if you have recently changed it as invitations may be sent via text message for those with a mobile phone number on our system.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a lovely Christmas. This year has been a challenge for us all and we thank you all for your support during these times.
