The new blood room provides a more pleasant and spacious environment for patients to have their bloods taken.

It has seven phlebotomy bays, an ECG room and a dedicated waiting area.

When you come to The Christie, a member of your clinical team will tell you if you need a blood test. They will also let you know where you need to book this and who you need to speak to.

In most cases, you can have blood taken the same day without any additional delays.

If you usually visit haematology for your blood tests, this hasn't changed. You should still visit haematology as normal for your blood test appointment.
