"Fantastic fast service for King's phlebotomy..."

About: King's College Hospital (Dulwich)

I just read another review of this service. I too visited the phlebotomy service at Dulwich Community Hospital last Monday 23rd June at about 3 pm. I was stunned and extremely impressed that I didn't have to wait at all, but was called straignt into the cubicle before I'd even had a chance to take a ticket from the machine. The phlebotmist was attentive and I was in and out in less than five minutes. What service! Maybe I just picked the right time of day to come but, in the past, there has always been a dreadful wait to get blood tests - regularly an hour to two hours - whatever time of the day. Whatever you've done to improve the service, well done! It made such a difference to me on a day when I wasn't feeling well, to get things done quickly. Thank you.

Response from King's College Hospital (Dulwich)

Thank you for your additional observations about waiting times on the same day. Waiting times clearly fluctuate but it is great to hear that times are reducing and that you faced no wait at all.I will pass on these positive comments to the manager of the service.
