Blood Tests and Investigations


North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) is to take over delivery of the Community and Domiciliary Phlebotomy (Blood Testing) Service from Wednesday 1 November 2017.

Once operating at full capacity, the new service will see longer opening hours and the introduction of an appointment booking system to reduce queueing and overcrowding on sites during peak periods of demand.

In order to deliver an improved service, the community-based service will be delivered from fewer sites.

The sites the community service will be delivered from are:

  • Silverthorn Medical Centre, 2 Friars Close, E4 6UN
  • St James Medical Practice, 47 St James St, Walthamstow, London E17 7NH
  • Langthorne Health Centre, 13 Langthorne Rd, London, E11 4HX

Patients should note that they are no longer routinely available at Whipps Cross.
