Blood tests at University Hospital Lewisham
We provide a phlebotomy ward round for hospital inpatients and a blood test service for hospital outpatient referrals in Suite 1, Purple Zone.
Patients are referred to Suite 1 from hospital outpatient clinics. Suite 1 also houses the Anticoagulation Clinic. Suite 1 is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm.

GP blood test requests
Suite 1 does not provide a service for GP patients.
Lewisham GPs have requested that patients referred by them should have their blood tests in one of the community phlebotomy (see below) sites rather than in Suite 1.
GP patients who need to attend Suite 1 for blood tests requiring specialised processing will be informed of this individually.
Blood tests are currently by appointment only due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing measures. Please do not show up at any of the clinics without an appointment. When you are referred for a blood test or other phlebotomy-related procedure, you should receive a form which lists the clinics and times where and when this is available to you.
Using this information, you can now request a blood test using our online form – simply fill it in and someone will contact you within two working days.
Alternatively, you can book in a time and location over the phone, using the number below:

Lines open 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday
Please note: Due to current high demand in calls you may experience a wait while getting through to book an appointment with our blood test clinics. Apologies, we are working hard to solve this issue.
