A drop-in phlebotomy clinic runs every morning from 08:15 - 11:15 on the second floor of St Paul's Medical Centre. It is open to patients of both Portland and Hatherley surgeries. You don't need to make an appointment; upon arrival you should take a numbered ticket and wait to be called. You will need to take your white blood test form with you.

The phlebotomists can see a maximum of 52 patients in a session. Once this number has been reached the clinic will close for the day. You will then have the option to return the following morning to have you blood test or to go to the drop-in clinic at Cheltenham General Hospital or Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
