The Blood Taking Unit at Northampton General Hospital

Although we offer Phlebotomy Services at the surgery, sometime you may wish to use the Blood Taking Unit (BTU) at Northampton General Hospital. It is operated as a walk in service, first come, first served.  

If you wish to use the BTU we recommend letting the surgery know the day before so we can ensure your blood test request has been sent electronically to the hospital so they know which tests are required by the Doctor. 

The unit is now located in Area H (see map below) 

Adult opening hours are:

Monday – Friday: 7.00am – 4.30pm

Saturday: 7.30am – 12 noon

Children’s opening hours are:

Monday – Friday: 8.00am - 11.30am

No appointments necessary

There is no service available on Sunday or Bank Holidays.
