Chase Farm Hospital and Royal Free Hospital
The blood taking services remain open for urgent tests and for those patients who need to come in for a regular test such as medication monitoring.
You will not be able to walk-in to the hospital for your blood test.
Temporary changes have also been made to clinic opening times:
- Chase Farm Hospital: Monday to Thursday, 8am to 5pm. Opening times on Fridays remain the same: 8am to 3.45pm
- Royal Free Hospital: Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 5pm
The service will be closed on Saturdays until further notice. Patients with appointments are being contacted.
Barnet Hospital and Edgware Community Hospital
Both blood taking services for out-patients will be closed from Monday 6 April until further notice. Affected patients are being contacted directly. The only exception is if you attend for anticoagulation therapy – please attend as advised by that service.
If you visit one of The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust hospitals for an out-patient appointment and your clinician has advised that you need a blood test, they will explain your options during your appointment.
