Blood tests are available:

  • Monday to Thursday 8.00am to 5.30pm (excludes bank holidays)
  • Friday 8.00am to 5.00pm
  • Saturday 8.00am to 12.00pm

Mornings are generally the busiest time for blood tests, so unless you need to fast before your test we recommend coming later in the day. Mondays and Tuesdays are the usually the busiest days of the week and Tuesdays following a bank holidays are always particularly busy and best avoided unless your blood test is urgent.

The anti-coagulation services takes place in Howlands Clinic which is opposite the Urgent Care Centre entrance.

Patient feedback

I just wanted to say how pleased I was today in the blood test department at the New QEII. I suffer from panic attacks and anxiety very badly. The staff were outstanding, including the lady on the desk. They put me at ease and helped me out a lot, and I just wanted to make that known.
