This is an appointment only service available Monday- Friday 8.00-16.00. Patients who present without an appointment will not be seen. Patients can book their appointments in advance by calling 01536 535600.
Paediatric Phlebotomy Requests
All children requiring blood tests are now seen on an appointment only basis. Parent/carers are asked to call our central booking line on 01536 492694 to arrange an appointment at their preferred location. It is not possible to book directly with the individual site. Parents presenting with their child on a walk-in basis (i.e. with no pre-booked appointment) will not be seen. A change has been made to ICE requesting enabling the authorisation for the use of local anaesthetic cream without the need to print out a specific authorisation form.
