Phlebotomy (Greenwich and Bexley)

We provide services across hospital and community sites and patients can choose to have their blood taken at their local surgery.

We provide specialised paediatric phlebotomy services within a safe and child friendly environment at both Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup. We also provide a specialist phlebotomist and trained play support in our paediatric clinics to minimise the trauma and psychological impact of having blood taken for children and their families.

As from Thursday 10th September 2020 all blood test appointments for all sites are now going to be booked through our new booking centre with one number for all, 0208 333 3217. This line will be open between 08:00 - 16:00, Monday - Friday.
