Changes to Walk-in Phlebotomy clinics

As part of ongoing work to restart services safely, the walk-in phlebotomy (blood taking) service that is run by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust at Beckenham Beacon and Orpington Hospital will move to a booked appointments service.

From 10th August 2020, the service will no longer accept walk-ins for GP referred blood taking. BGPA are managing the booking of appointments so call 0203 930 0245 to book an appointment.

These changes will limit the number of people visiting clinic areas at any given time. This will protect patients and staff by helping to maintain social distancing measures, which are an important part of reducing the risk of COVID-19.

There is no change for hospital Warfarin/INR patients to get an appointment. You can still walk-in and will be managed by the outpatients department.

      For Warfarin users – INR monitoring: To ensure timely reporting of results you will need to use the hospital phlebotomy services at Princess Royal University Hospital, Beckenham Beacon, or Orpington Hospital. There is no change for hospital Warfarin/INR patients to get an appointment. You can still walk-in and will be managed by the outpatients department.
