Blood Test Appointments (Online and Domiciliary Requests)


On line booking of blood tests in Coventry, Rugby & North Warwickshire

Booking an Appointment

Phlebotomy clinics are now operating on an appointments only basis

Walk in patients who attend clinics will be asked to make an appointment for their blood test

Patients can book at www.uhcw.nhs.uk/bloodtests – for all clinics across Coventry and Warwickshire

Family members and carers can also book through the online system on behalf of their relatives and dependents

For the minority of people who do not have internet access to book online, there is a telephone booking line – 024 7615 3546 – please note the line has limited capacity so is only for those without internet

Warwick Hospital is requesting that patients with GP blood test requests do not come onto the Warwick Hospital site solely for a blood test, please direct patients to Stratford or RSX clinics

Practices and Clinics can directly book patients into blood test clinics, if they so wish – it is quick and simple

Practices can register for a log in at: https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/gpfacilitylogin.php#
