Blood test information

Blood tests can be booked with one of our healthcare assistants here at the surgery, or you may wish to attend the walk in phlebotomy clinic at the Memorial Hospital which runs every morning, Monday to Friday.

Our test request system is now online, so you do not need a paper copy of the request form.  However, when attending the hospital you should give them your NHS number for identification.

Please note if you have a fasting blood test request then you will be required to fast for 12 hours prior to the test and to drink plenty of water only up until that time to make sure you are hydrated.
