Blood tests


All patients who have a GP blood test request must book an appointment for a blood test in advance.

Patients under a hospital consultant or antenatal care can be seen as a walk-in patient.

Due to the increased demand of patients we are seeing due to GP practices remaining closed, the phone lines can get extremely busy, so you may have to wait or call back at another time to book your appointment.

To book an appointment, please call 01384 365155 or 01384 244330.

Please note phone lines are open from 9am – 5pm.

All routine blood tests will be booked within 10 days of the request, as per guidance.

Patients should not arrive more than 5 minutes before their appointment time for social distancing reasons.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
