If your GP has referred you for a blood test, they can make an appointment on your behalf, or alternatively, you can book an appointment yourself using Swiftqueue.

Swiftqueue is an online appointment booking system that allows you to book your blood test at Whittington Hospital. You can register with Swiftqueue now here. Once registered, you can use this page to book your appointment.
We aim to introduce Swiftqueue at our other healthcare sites soon, but for now, Swiftqueue can only be used to book a blood test at Whittington Hospital. Watch this space for an update!

Whittington Health NHS Trust run a number of phlebotomy clinics in the community and one in the hospital. These services are for adults only, however. If you require a blood test for someone under the age of 16, please contact the Paediatric Outpatient department on 02072885321 to book an appointment.
