East Kent NHS Trust Phlebotomy Services

This is now an appointment only service and they do not accept patients as walk ins. This is to control the footfall through the hospital sites during and after the height of the pandemic and to reduce the time patients spend in our waiting areas.

Instead, please book your blood test appointment online here. If you are unable to do so for any reason, there is a booking test line, 01227 206739 open between the hours of 8:30 - 4:30 Monday - Friday
