It is possible to book in for blood tests here at the surgery. We offer morning appointments with our Health Care Assistant.
Another option is to attend the phlebotomy clinic in Outpatients 3 at the Countess of Chester Hospital – you can either simply turn up between 7.30am – 17.50pm, with a blood form from the doctors surgery, or you can book ahead here: http://www.coch.nhs.uk/blood-test-booking.aspx

Blood Test Results
We ask that you leave at least 3 working days from your blood test until you phone for results. Some tests take longer to come back. If you phone between 10am and 3pm, then the receptionists will be able to read out a summary comment from the doctors. If the results are slightly more complex and need some explanation or discussion, then they may ask you to make an appointment.
