There have been some changes to the Blood Service at Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals

Your GP will no longer send you to Hillingdon Hospital for a blood test.

From 8 March 2021, blood tests at Mount Vernon Hospital will be by appointment only - and you must be over 16 years old to attend Mount Vernon blood clinic - to be booked via thh.nhs.uk/bookings

This does not apply to patients attending the Phlebotomy Department from clinics or wards at either of our hospitals.

Appointments are also available at community phlebotomy clinics - To book one of these please contact your GP.

All sessions must be booked.
