Where to get a blood test

In light of Covid-19, we have taken steps to protect the public, our patients and staff. We now only offer blood tests, by appointment, for people under our care.

For blood tests requested by a GP, these now take place in community clinics. This is to avoid people coming into hospital unnecessarily.

These clinics are currently being run the North East London Foundation Trust and the Hurley Group. Please be aware this means we are unable to help with any issues.

Visit the link below for information on: 

  • clinic locations
  • how to book a test
  • who to contact if you are having any issues with your appointment.

Children under 12 will continue to have their blood tests through the Children’s Phlebotomy Service. Please telephone 01708 435 289 for an appointment for a child.
