Patient Information On Blood Tests
A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment - blood bottles used for taking blood tests.
Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.
If you are already waiting for a test that has been booked, please do not contact your GP unless you believe that it was clinically urgent to have the test. If it is not urgent, you will be asked to wait until there are adequate supplies of blood bottles.
Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine
Groups of GP practices in Liverpool are beginning to invite people aged over 80 to have the Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine – this brief update explains more about how the process works.
You don’t need to contact your GP practice or another NHS organisation to ask for your vaccination – or to request one for a member of your family – you will be invited when it is time for you to be vaccinated, either with a letter or a phone call.
The city’s GP practices are working together to vaccinate patients, so you might not be contacted by your usual practice, and you might need to go to a different location for the vaccination itself – you will be told where to attend when you are invited in. When you have had your vaccination you will be told when you will need to go back for your second dose.
Not all areas of the city have started vaccinating yet, so don’t be worried if you or a family member is over 80 but hasn’t heard anything so far. You might know others over 80 who have been invited for their vaccination already, but that doesn’t mean that you are a lower priority. GPs and other practice staff are working hard to vaccinate as many people in this group as quickly as possible, and during January many more people will be invited in, but it is only the start of the vaccination programme and it will take some time to work through everyone.
You can find general information about the Covid-19 vaccine here: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine

Every part of the building is accessible by wheelchair and all other facilities were designed specifically to assist those who are in wheelchairs, with wide doors and corridors and low level light switches and door handles. We have recently changed signage to aid the visually impaired There is parking around the building and elsewhere on the site with approximately 140 parking spaces available.

Please ensure you contact us prior to travel because most vaccinations are required to be given 6 to 8 weeks in advance. Please note we are currently unable to obtain Adult Hepatitis A or Typhoid vaccinations, therefore please contact the School of Tropical Medicine for these vaccines. However, combined Hepatitis A&B vaccinations are available.
