The walk-in service for blood tests was closed in response to Covid-19.  If you need a blood test, you must now make an appointment using the Blood Call Centre. This is one dedicated number for patients to call to book a blood test appointment at either Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Queen Mary's Hospital, Erith Hospital or Lewisham Community Hospital.

The call centre is open Monday - Friday 8.00am until 4.00pm
