NGH NHS Trust opening times for Blood taking unit and Paediatrics


From Tuesday the 31st of March there are changes to the Blood Taking Unit at NGH. In order to keep patients safe at this time we are redirecting parts of this service to The Three Shires Hospital.


If you require a blood test you will need to contact the hospital to make an appointment on these numbers:


01604 690027

01604 690035


Three Shires will offer appointments Monday to Friday during the following times:


Monday -Friday 9am - 12:30pm and  13:30pm - 17:00pm


If you are a patient of our Maternity Unit they will make arrangements for you to have your bloods taken and you do not need to attend the Three Shires.


If your child requires a blood test the Blood Taking Unit t NGH will be open on Mondays from 10am-11am for paediatric patients only.


Travel Vacinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurses, but first you will need to complete a questionaire (see below or collect from Reception). This questionaire asks you to advise which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine which vaccinations are required. The nurse will then review your needs and call you to advise what is recommended, and where appropriate arrange an appointment.  Please note that many vaccinations are not provided by the NHS and accordingly a fee may be payable.  The nurse will advise you about this.  We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.


It is important to complete the questionaire as early as possible  - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as our Practice Nurses cannot vaccinate you without the information required on the questionaire, will need to make an appointment to vaccinate you, and may have to order the vaccine in if it is not a stock line we carry.

Please help us to help you by giving us plenty of time to arrange your vaccinations.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Travel Health Questionnaire
