Blood tests during Covid-19

Blood tests are currently by appointment only due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing measures. 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; you then can book in a time with your chosen location.

Here is a list of the current status of the various phlebotomy clinics to which you may be referred by our Trust, organised by London borough. This list is subject to change, so please do call to confirm your appointment with the clinic.
