New drive through blood taking service

New drive through blood taking service

For those of you who have been using the drive though facility to have blood tests, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals have announced a new location.

They say:

New location for our drive-through blood taking service:

Our drive through blood taking service will be moving to Building 183 (Former Blood Service site), Longley Lane, Sheffield, S5 7JN from Monday 14th December.

The current service running at the Sheffield Arena will end on Thursday 10th December and will re-open at our new location on Monday 14th. The service will be closed at both locations on Friday 11th to Sunday 13th.

Due to poor lighting, the opening times for the blood taking service at the Sheffield Arena will now be 8am to 3.30pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturday. Once the service has moved to Longley Lane, usual opening times will resume and the service will be open from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) and 8.30am to 1pm on Saturday.

For patients who cannot use the drive through service, we continue to provide blood tests at the Hallamshire and Northern General Hospitals but with additional measures in place to limit the risk of transmission of infection.
