Opening hours: 8.30am-4.15pm Monday-Friday (closed on bank holidays)
This service is open to Barts Health patients visiting the hospital for face-to-face outpatient appointments only. GP patients should book appointments for blood tests at their GP practice.
You must have a booked appointment to attend this service. If you have not made an appointment, you will be given details to book an appointment and asked to return later. Patients seen face to face in clinic will usually be able to book a slot for the same day subject to availability, using the kiosk in the clinic. However, there may be a long wait for same-day unbooked slots, depending on how busy the clinic is at any particular time, so we advise booking where possible.
Book online now.
They can print the request form stickers/labels directly from the hospital computer system, so you shouldn’t need to bring a request form or label.
Tower Hamlets community clinics in GP practices
Outpatient blood tests are now available at GP practices across Tower Hamlets.
Your GP cannot request a blood test on behalf of the hospital or print labels from the hospital computer system. You will need your hospital team to request the test and provide you with a request label, even if the GP practice is helping with the phlebotomy. Your hospital will need to post you the labels.
On the day of your blood test, please make sure you have your label with you. The GP practice will not be able to complete your blood test without it.
