Patients are asked to book an appointment with one of our clinicians before booking a blood test. The clinician will need to request a blood test for you and issue necessary forms.
You will need to collect your blood forms from the practice and bring along to your blood test appointment at the Royal Free.
How to book your blood test
The Royal Free Hospital’s blood test service is now by appointment only.
You can book an adult or child blood test at The Royal Free Hospital online here
If you are unable to book online, please call: 020 7443 9757, Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm
It is your responsibility to call the surgery for results; however, if the result is significantly abnormal, a doctor will contact you. Please call 0207 328 8200 between 12:00 and 12:45 (Monday – Friday), to obtain your results.
The results of most tests such as bloods and swabs are available within 7 days of having the procedure, but some do take longer, for example x-rays and ultra sound scans.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
The result of the cervical cytology screening test (smear) should be received by the woman at her home address, within 14 days weeks of having the test (but definitely within 4 weeks). These results are sent directly from Camden Primary Care Trust (PCT) to the confirmed address given at the time of having the test.
