Changes to the blood taking unit

From Tuesday the 31st of March there are changes to the Blood Taking Unit at NGH. In order to keep patients safe at this time we are redirecting parts of this service to The Three Shires Hospital.

If you require a blood test you will need to contact the three shires hospital to make an appointment on these numbers:

Three Shires will offer appointments Monday to Friday during the following times:

  • Monday -Friday 9am – 12:30pm and 13:30pm – 17:00pm

If you are a patient of our Maternity Unit they will make arrangements for you to have your bloods taken and you do not need to attend the Three Shires.

If your child requires a blood test the Blood Taking Unit at NGH will be open on Mondays from 10am-11am for paediatric patients only.
