Blood tests

Our blood sampling service (phlebotomy service) is available on Mondays, Tuesdays & Fridays. The service is by appointment only, so please book an appointment for a blood test with Jane or Susan through reception.

If this service is not convenient, you may alternatively use the phlebotomy service at Southampton General Hospital, located on C-level in the Pathology Department (in Centre Block). You can reach the hospital using Unilink bus U6H.

UHS introduced an online booking service for adult phlebotomy appointments at the end of last year. Using this, patients can book, cancel and amend blood test appointments by visiting patientbooking.uhs.nhs.uk. This is really positive, as previously patients had to call the booking line – which is under extreme pressure, resulting in lengthy waits for some patients. It also means patients can choose an appointment that is convenient for them across multiple sites, and have control over amending/ cancelling their own tests if necessary.
