PLEASE NOTE: Blood Tests Policy

Posted by: olivercobbin - Posted on:

Dear Patients,

We would like to remind you of our policy regarding blood tests.

The NHS funds Nottinghamshire healthcare to do these for Nottingham patients both for GPs and hospitals.  Our local centre is at PARK HOUSE, other options include Hucknall Health Care Centre (Hucknall, has parking), Highcroft Health Centre (Arnold, has parking).  Phlebotomy | Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Bloods can also be done at QMC and Nottingham City hospital, both of which have a drop in service:

All blood tests require a form which will be provided by the GP surgery or your hospital consultant.

There is no funding to provide blood test appointments at Peacock – Carlton Hill, or Trentside Netherfield. Blood tests will no longer be available at Peacock- Carlton Hill except for exceptional circumstances.

This means we can increase availability for other NHS services and reducing waiting times for all patients. Thank you for your understanding in this matter and helping us provide a better service.
