The adult clinical haematology service at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust enjoys an international reputation as a centre of excellence for the management of blood diseases.

We see patients with blood cancers, red blood cell disorders, and bleeding and clotting disorders.

We also have outpatient clinics for new patients and some specialist disorders at St Mary’s Hospital.

Blood tests in haematology

In response to Covid-19 from the 9 November 2020 we will be offering bookable blood tests appointments for some of our patients groups. This will be a small group of patients at first as it will be part of a staged implementation.

The reason for this change.

This change will allow us to better adhere to social distancing guidelines set out by the Government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will reduce the waiting times for your blood tests and allow for you to easily access the service at a time convenient to you.

What this means

On commotion of the stage implementation we will no longer be offering ‘walk-in’ service. Going forward you will be required to make an appointment to have your blood test carried out.

When to book your blood test appointment

During your consultation with a member of our clinical team they may have discussed that you will need a blood test before your next appointment and gave you a time frame to have this done before they see you next. Three weeks before you next clinic appointment you will need to book your blood test via the Zesty platform within the given time frame.

How to book an appointment

The booking platform we will be using is called Zesty which is a web based application that does not require a login and can be easily accessed from any device that has internet access.

Blood tests can be booked through the link below:
