Additional information

Waiting times
With the introduction of our new online booking system and the provision of booked appointment slots our waiting times have reduced significantly from an average of 2 hours down to an average of 30 minutes and often a lot less. Booking an appointment allows us to manage patient queues more efficiently and means that you will experience a significantly reduced waiting time. 

There may be times where booked appointments will be running late due to unforeseen circumstances such as patients taking ill in one of our treatment rooms. We will always let you know if there are any unexpected delays when you check in for your appointment.
In locations where there is no booking availability yet you may experience a longer wait due to the unpredictable demand on the walk in service .

Fasting patients
Patients who have been requested to have a fasting blood test should not eat or drink anything, other than plain water, for 10 hours before attending for their blood test unless advised otherwise by their clinician.

Specialised tests
Some specialised tests can only be undertaken at the main phlebotomy clinic at Basildon University Hospital. Your doctor should advise you of this, but if in doubt please contact Phlebotomy Reception at Basildon University Hospital for advice.
