There are now two ways you can have a blood test here at The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust.
When attending for a blood test please ensure that you bring your blood request form with you. The phlebotomist needs this so that we know what blood to take for which test, without this form we will not be able to take your blood sample.
NATIONAL SUPPLY ISSUES WITH BLOOD TUBES
Due to the national supply issues with blood tubes, we will be reducing the number of routine blood test appointments available at all centres for GP patients.
Any clinically urgent blood test will be offered by the GP at the surgery for their patient or referred to The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust for testing.
This decision has been reached in agreement with CCG and GP representatives.
GPs will be sending out further communications regarding this to their patients.
This situation will be reviewed daily until normal supply of tubes resumes.
If you have been referred directly from your GP and have a copy of the form below, you will need to book online or call us before attending. All the booking details can be found at the bottom of the page.
CONSULTANT OR NURSE REFERRAL
If your consultant or nurse in the hospital have asked you to get a blood test and have provided the form below, then you can book a time slot via our online booking system or telephone booking line. Alternatively you can now access our walk-in services at the time of your hospital visit without an appointment.
Please note that if you are seen in a virtual clinic, ie by video link, and your consultant wishes you to have a blood test, you will need to book this online via the links below. Your consultant will send an electronic request to the department so the phlebotomist knows what tests are required, but you are required to make the booking.
