Blood tests

Changes to blood testing services

Due to Covid-19, blood testing services across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge have changed to ensure that the public, patients and our staff can be protected. For up to date service information on blood testing services, use the "Where to go to have a blood test" guide available in the downloads.

If your GP tells you that you need to have a blood test, you must book an appointment in advance – please do not just turn up. This is to ensure that infection control and social distancing guidance can be followed.

Children aged under 12 can now have blood tests with the children’s outpatients service at BHRUT. Your GP will be able to refer you or you can call the outpatients paediatrics team at Queen’s Hospital for advice on 01708 435289.

Please check the download for your nearest centre and follow the guidance on how to make an appointment.
