Phlebotomy (blood tests)

We hold blood test clinics at Royal Derby Hospital, Florence Nightingale Community Hospital, Queen's Hospital Burton, Samuel Johnson Community Hospital and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital. 

We also provide local clinics around the community to help patients who may find it difficult to travel to our hospitals.

UHDB patients can now book themselves in for a blood test (opens in new window) > online at each of our five hospitals and local clinics.

Patients can also view the phlebotomy (blood test) clinics and opening times >.

Please note that the service provided at both Samuel Johnson and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospitals is only for patients who have had their bloods ordered by the Trust - patients referred by their GP will not be seen. 

All patients who attend a clinic, having had their blood test requested by UHDB clinicians, will have been provided with a leaflet containing a link to book their next appointment online via Swiftqueue. 

Please check clinic times and the advice is to attend early. For Samuel Johnson and Sir Robert Peel patients if you are unable to access a computer then please contact the consultant’s secretary. Renal patients at Queen's need to attend Samuel Johnson Hospital.

Book your blood test appointment

The booking system helps patients, their carers, and family members to plan their trip to a blood clinic, helping to reduce clinic waiting times and enabling patients to be seen much more quickly.
