UPDATE: NGH Blood Taking Service Unit Change

The blood taking unit (phlebotomy) will reopen in its original location on the Northampton General Hospital site, Area H, for paediatric and adult patients.

The phone lines will be open from the 29th June 2020.

We have made a change to our service and all patients must now have an appointment to attend the blood taking unit.

Appointments for both paediatric and adult blood taking can be booked Monday to Friday between 9am and 3:30pm by phoning on 01604 523303 or 01604 544190.

To minimise the risk to patients during the pandemic, as a temporary measure, patients attending appointments will not need to bring their Pathology Request Form with them.

The adult phlebotomy service will be from 8am - 4pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 12:30pm on Saturday.

The paediatric phlebotomy service will return to the blood taking unit 8am – 11:30am Monday – Friday.

All patients must wear a face coveringmaintain social distancing and must attend alone where possible. The waiting area has limited spaces so please only attend at the time of your appointment. If there are any reasons why wearing a face covering or attending alone is not possible, please inform the team when booking your appointment.
