Royal United Hospital Blood Test Changes
Royal United Hospital Bath is having a new laboratory computer system from 4 November. Patients who have seen a Consultant and are asked to have bloods taken in the surgery will be given the labels to bring to us indicating which bloods are required. We will not be able to take the bloods if we do not have these labels as we will not know what bloods are needed. We will be asking patients if they have the hospital labels before we can book them an appointment for a blood test. Patients will need to get the label from the hospital and no appointment for bloods can be given until they have the label.
