Central booking line and work to address waiting times

We introduced a central booking service – through 020 8333 3217 – due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing restrictions. Our lines are open from 8am to 4pm, from Monday to Friday.

We are sorry that people are still experiencing long waits and difficulties booking blood testing service and are working to improve access to these services. Our call centre is now fully staffed and answering calls within an average of 8 minutes. We have introduced a temporary call-back request form; if you fill in your details we will call you back to book you in for an appointment.

We are also putting in place an online booking solution, which will enable you to see all available sites and appointments, and book directly into them without the need to call the contact centre. This is planned to be in place by the end of the summer. The telephone line will remain for those who need or prefer to access the service in this way.
