Sometimes, various tests such as blood tests and urine tests etc., may be required by your GP.
If you need to have a blood test, your doctor will print a blood test form for you which you must pick up from reception.
WE DO NOT TAKE BLOOD TESTS HERE AT THE SURGERY.
You must take the blood form to Rugby St Cross Hospital to the blood department to have your test taken.
The hospital strongly advise all patients to use their new online appointment system before attending for a blood test to avoid any disappointment. The new service helps patients, their carers and family members to plan their hospital visit better, helping to reduce clinic waiting times and enabling patients to be seen much more quickly.
Walk-in appointments remain available dependent on availability, however you may have to wait for the next available appointment time. Please note that walk-in patients will be given an approximate time slot and this may vary.
Once they have filled all allocated slots, they can no longer accept walk-in appointments and you may need to revisit the hospital to have your blood test on another occasion.
