Blood Tests

The demand for blood tests is greater than we can supply at the surgery. Priority is given to those patients who are particularly frail.

You may well be asked to get your blood test done at either the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading or Bracknell Healthspace. All appointments at these two clinics must be pre booked. To book an appointment please follow the link below:

www.royalberkshire.nhs.uk/wards-and-services/blood-tests

Then follow the instructions to book an appointment.

Patients having blood tests done at the hospital will be asked to confirm the following information:

  • Date of Birth (DOB), name and address
  • NHS number (if known)

Once above details are confirmed by the patient, the phlebotomist will print the form and take the bloods. You do not need to take a form with you from the surgery as the request is made electronically by your clinician.

*Patients who are unable to confirm their details without assistance can arrange to bring a carer, interpreter, or family member with them.
