Improved access times and larger space for Spalding Blood Clinic at Johnson Community Hospital
People needing a blood test in Spalding can now use a daily drop-in session without an appointment.
The blood test (phlebotomy) clinic at Johnson Community Hospital has introduced a drop-in session every week day, Mondays to Fridays, from 8am to 12.30pm, where no appointment will be necessary.
Further changes mean that Spalding Blood Line is now available for people to call and make appointments from 9am until 6pm, Monday to Friday, except Bank Holidays.
All other clinic times remain the same, with an appointments system running alongside drop-in times from 7.30am to 1.15pm.
Meanwhile, the clinic itself has been relocated to the outpatients department and is in a larger room.
Sally Brown, sister for Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust's Outpatients department, said: "We have introduced these changes in response to increased demand for the service and to create more space for the clinic.
"We hope that by improving both access and the clinic room, we will be able to improve the efficiency of the service that we offer."
