Phlebotomy advice

09 April 2020


We understand that you may have concerns about attending for blood tests during the COVID-19 outbreak.

If you have been asked to have a blood test by your Consultant, we would encourage you to continue to do so. Having your blood test allows for your clinician to manage your condition & monitor your health effectively.

Therefore we would like to make you aware that, in addition to our walk in service, we are now able to offer you a booked appointment for your blood test to minimise the waiting time in the department.  As you will see in our photo, the Pathology waiting area is compliant with social distancing & the staff have all of the correct PPE (Protective Personal Equipment) as per Public Health England guidelines.



If you would like to book a blood test appointment please call 01493 452451 and a receptionist will be able to book a convenient appointment for you.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please phone the Pathology department who will be able to advise you of options available to you.
