Northampton General Hospital Blood taking unit introduces online booking system

Patients wanting to book blood taking appointments at Northampton General Hospital can now use an online booking process to manage their appointments.

Following a change in the appointment system due to COVID and feedback from patients, the team have developed a new system to make booking appointments easier.

Appointments for adult, special and paediatric blood tests can all now be booked online https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/northampton.php

Isabelle Brooker, Blood Taking Unit Operational Manager said “We hope this system will make it easier for our patients to book their blood taking appointments at their convenience. We know there have been a number of changes to the service but we hope this will offer a better experience for our patients.

“We would like to thank the community for their support and patience as our team has worked to answer calls as quickly as possible”.
