GP Blood Testing

Due to a surge in demand for laboratory services, regrettably, effective from Monday, 25 September 2023, we will be temporarily closing our SwiftQueue Phlebotomy GP service for routine appointments.

We will continue to provide 10 emergency SwiftQueue Phlebotomy appointments each day for critical patients to attend for urgent phlebotomy services. These appointments will be accessed by GPs only and will require the Healthlink form and the clinical need for urgent bloods.

We have reached this difficult decision in order to ensure service levels are maintained for our urgent inpatient cohort.

Additional information has been provided see enclosed. We will review this decision in January 2024 and will revert accordingly.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

Kind Regards
Fiona Kearney, &
Niamh Leonard,
