​​​Blood testing​ 

When your GP refers you for a blood test (also called ​phlebotomy), you can use the blood-testing service provided at Queen Elizabeth Hospital or Eltham Community Hospital, or you can choose to have your blood tested at a community phlebotomy clinic close to where you live or work. You can choose to attend the clinic that is most convenient to you - it does not have to be your usual surgery. 

You can choose from clinics that offer services on a ‘walk-in’ basis, where no appointment is needed, or you can call the relevant number, where stated, to make an appointment in advance - download the list of blood testing clinics in Greenwich.

In the first instance, please speak to your GP or practice nurse - they will be able to advise you on where to go for your blood test.
