Coronavirus guidance

If you think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus, follow the national guidance and self-isolate for 10 days. We have Introduced a number of measures and changes to help delay the spread of the virus and maintain essential health services for those that will continue to need them during these unprecedented times. If you, or a member of your family has tested positive for Coronavirus, please find resources to aid your/their recovery on our Coronavirus - Supporting your recovery page.

Phlebotomy (blood tests)

We hold blood test clinics at Royal Derby Hospital, London Road 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 online at each of our five hospitals.

Via the new Switftqueue booking system, UHDB patients will be able to book an appointment at our blood clinics at Royal Derby Hospital, Queen's Hospital Burton, London Road Community Hospital, and now also at Samuel Johnson Community Hospital and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital. 

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. 

*You can book via the link below*

Book your blood test appointment

To help reduce patient waiting times and to support social distancing we strongly advise all patients to use our new online appointment system before attending for a blood test. The new service 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.
