If you require a routine OR urgent blood test, please see the following information to support you in accessing the most appropriate service.

Local NHS staff are working extremely hard to maintain services during this difficult time and the continued cooperation of patients is greatly appreciated.

Please do not attend these clinics if you are experiencing symptoms of coronavirus.

Please continue to socially distance from others and wear a face covering whilst attending any NHS site, including your local hospital, GP surgery or community clinic, as per current government guidance, available at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Only the patient requiring the blood test should enter the clinic unless assistance is required by a carer or relative for the duration.

Booking blood tests

GP requested routine blood tests can be booked at your local hospital.

Appointments can be made at Royal Preston Hospital or Chorley and South Ribble District General Hospital, operating Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm.

To book your appointment, please call 01257 247095.

 You should only attend one of these hospital clinics for a blood test if:

  • your doctor has instructed you to do so, AND
  • has supplied you with a blood form to bring with you to your appointment.

The blood form is a requirement for your appointment so please remember to bring it along. If you have not received a blood form, but have been instructed to attend a hospital clinic, please contact your GP practice directly before attending.

If you are attending Royal Preston Hospital for a routine blood-test, please arrive at the main entrance and turn right towards the ambulance desk; the clinic details will be sign posted from here.

If you are attending Chorley and South Ribble District General Hospital for a routine blood-test, please arrive at the front door of the Urgent Care Centre.

Booking urgent blood tests

There are a number of ways to access urgent blood test clinic appointments. Both clinic options provide the same service. Please note the different opening times, contact details and location with the hospital sites.

You should only attend one of these hospital clinics for an urgent blood test if:

These urgent clinics will take place in the usual blood clinic locations at both Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley and South Ribble District General Hospital.

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled. 

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available. 

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
