We perform blood tests for adults and children aged 13 and over.

The clinics are walk-in – you do not need an appointment.  We recommend that you arrive by 4pm (by 5.45pm for our late Wednesday evening clinic at the Princess Royal) because they become very busy. If you arrive later and the clinic is full, we cannot guarantee that you will have your blood test.  The clinics must finish on time so samples can be sent to our laboratories.


Children’s blood tests

Children aged 12 and under who need blood tests are seen by the Children’s team at Princess Royal University Hospital. This service is appointment only and booked by GPs.
