Blood Tests at Cromer Hospital
Due to limited availability of appointments with the Health Care Assistants, we are requesting that patients attend Cromer Hospital for routine blood tests.
We have had excellent feedback from patients who have used this service for a number of years. You can simply turn up with your blood form at the Phlebotomy
Department (situated on the first floor of the hospital) and you will be seen shortly thereafter in order of arrival.
We will still be running a phlebotomy service at the Practice for patients who are unable to attend Cromer Hospital, or who have more complex needs. If this applies to you please contact the reception team to request an appointment.
Opening Times at Cromer Hospital:
- Monday to Friday: 08:30 – 16:30 (closed Bank Holidays)
(Please be aware there is a reduced service from 12:00 – 14:00)
If you have any queries please call the Phlebotomy Department at Cromer Hospital on 01603 646168.
Don’t Forget To Take Your Blood Form!
Pay & Display parking is available. There is also on-road parking on Mill Road but it is requested that drivers are considerate to residents living in the Mill Road area and park sensibly.
Will my results go back to the Surgery?
Yes, your results will be sent to the doctor / nurse at the Surgery.
When should I contact the Surgery for my results?
Please allow at least 1 week before contacting the Surgery for your blood results. You can request your test results using our online form.
How will I know if I need to fast for my blood test?
You will be told by your doctor / nurse or in your clinic letter. Most tests do not require fasting.
How long do I need to fast before a fasting blood test?
You need to fast for 12 hours before a fasting blood test, and only drink water during this period. We therefore advise you have your test as early as possible so that you only need to fast over-night.
What do I need to take with me to the Hospital?
All you need to take with you is your blood form (which was given to you by your doctor / nurse, enclosed in your clinic letter or available from reception).
What if I am housebound and cannot attend Cromer Hospital?
A: If this applies to you, please contact the Nurse Admin using our online form who can organise for a District Nurse to visit you at home.
