Where to get a blood test
Blood tests update – Bank holiday Monday
All blood testing sites will be closed on Bank holiday Monday (19 September) to allow staff to pay their respects on the day of Her Majesty the Queen’s funeral.
Sites will reopen as normal on Tuesday 20 September.
How to book 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. You can get a blood test at a community clinic using hospital forms or GP forms.
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.

For blood tests in our hospitals (patients under our care only)
Telephone: 01708 435498 (office hours only).
Children aged between seven and 12
To reduce waiting times for children, those aged between seven and 12 years of age can have their blood tests in the Cedar Centre at King George Hospital.
If you have a child aged between seven and 12 and are unable to book an appointment online, please call 01708 435 498 to book a blood test.
Children under seven
Children under seven years of age have their blood tests through our Children’s Phlebotomy Service.
When booking an appointment, you can either create a separate SwiftQueue account for your child or if you have one already, add your child onto the account and book the blood test.
If you have a child under the age of seven, or under the age of 16 with a learning disability, please call our Paediatric Outpatients Team on 01708 435 000 (ext 2675) to book a blood test.
For blood tests requested by a GP
Telephone: 0300 300 1704 or 0300 555 1045 (office hours only).
