A new appointment booking system for blood tests at the former North Wing hospital in Kimbolton Road is now available for patients from March 1 onwards.

Patients can now book a blood test at Gilbert Hitchcock House - sometimes on the same day - and there will be early appointments available for those patients who have been asked to fast by their GP.

The new system will reduce the waiting and queuing times when attending for blood tests.
