Phlebotomist (Blood Test Nurse)
Blood tests are available each morning. We also have a drop-in lunchtime session between 1pm - 2.30pm. There is no need for an appointment, just drop in, as long as your GP has requested your sample. NB: There is a maximum of 15 patients seen each day.
Childrens' Blood Tests
If a child under 16 years old requires a blood test they can go to The Butterfly Room at the Southampton General Hospital, which run a walk-in service from Monday - Friday 9.00am to 12.00pm and 2.00pm to 4.00pm. If a child needs to fast for their blood test they can arrive at 8.15am. (Please ensure you take the Blood Test Form with you)
