Where to get a blood test

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.
