Princess Alexandra Hospital is now operating an appointment system to provide blood tests for all patients which will ensure social distancing.
This service is available at the outpatients departments at The Princess Alexandra Hospital, St Margaret's Hospital, and Herts and Essex Hospital.
The booking line is open from Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 2.30pm. You can contact the team on 01279 827163 or via their website at https://www.pah.nhs.uk/our-services/service/blood-tests-30/
Where possible, patients will need to enter the site on their own. Carers who are not required to assist the patient will be asked to wait outside
Patients who attend without an appointment will still be seen during a changeover period if the numbers waiting and social distancing allow
