Where to get a blood test

Due to the steps we have taken to keep patients, public and staff safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are offering a limited blood testing service. This means our regular blood testing departments at both King George and Queen’s hospitals are closed.

However we are seeing Maternity and Oncology patients, and patients from some specialties who are receiving treatment in our hospitals. If you are one of these patients, you will have been informed how to have your blood test.

Children's blood tests will only be carried out on the advice of a consultant paediatrician. All other patients should contact their referrer for advice. Information changes frequently, so please keep checking this page for the latest advice. 

Below you will find more information, including clinics in the community where you can get a blood test.
