A note about blood tests from 1 October 2019

The public has asked for simpler services, which has led to the creation of an Urgent Treatment Centre which will replace the Walk-in Centre in Colchester. The Urgent Treatment Centre at Colchester Hospital will not provide walk-in blood test (phlebotomy) services.

From 1 October, you will continue to be able to access blood test services from your GP practice. Please contact Wivenhoe Medical Centre on 01206 824447 for a blood test appointment.
