- Blood tests:
Please note, we no longer operate a walk-in service.
Phlebotomy services are now appointment only system to enable social distancing and reduce waiting times for patients. Patients can choose where and when they have their blood test. Appointments can be made by GPs, outpatient clinics or by patients.
The number to make appointments is 023 8120 4877 Monday-Friday 8am-6pm.
All patients should bring their blood form with them to the appointment, as the Phlebotomist may not be able to print it for them.
