Interim Westfield Blood Testing Clinic to Close

The interim blood testing service established at Westfield is to close on Tuesday 27 September

Blood test bottlesThe interim clinic offered additional blood tests to local residents to reduce the waiting time for a blood test. Going forward, the plan is to introduce extra capacity at the four blood test clinics in the borough.

The Phlebotomy service takes samples of blood for analysis to support diagnosis and/or monitoring of a health condition, when referred by GP or acute services.

There are four phlebotomy (blood testing) clinics in Newham to choose from. All appointments are made online*. It is quick and straightforward and people get a reminder text message the day before their appointment.

Booking online means that patients do not have to wait with others in a waiting room but can just attend at the time of their appointment.

All appointments and bookings must be made via this Swiftqueue system
