PHLEBOTOMY (BLOOD TESTING)

What can I expect when I come for my blood testing appointment?

We have changed the way blood testing services are delivered and the following safety measures have been put in place for patients who need to attend the outpatient department.  Please note that all blood tests requested by your GP will take place in St Joseph's Hospital Raheny.  See more information on our GP blood testing service HERE

  • Phlebotomy no longer offers a walk-in service. You must book your appointment via www.swiftqueue.ie or by calling 01 212 0993 between 8am and 4pm. 
  • The booking system allows for reduced waiting times and allows patients to maintain safe social distancing.
  • Patients are being asked to attend no more than 5 minutes before their scheduled appointment time, to ensure safe physical and social distancing and to avoid over-crowding.
  • Staff will be on hand to guide and help you and we ask that you please adhere to their instructions and follow the floor markings through the hospital.
  • If you are attending phlebotomy ahead of your next clinic appointment you will need to check in at the tented area (follow the signs and take the second entrance)
  • We request that you attend unaccompanied where possible. Children are not permitted to attend.
  • Staff will perform temperature checks and provide facemasks, for all patients and relatives
  • For patients who arrive without a prior appointment we will attempt to accommodate you on the same day, however if there is not immediate availability you will be asked to wait in your car and return 5 mins prior to your appointment.
  • Please maintain social distancing at all times and avail of the hand sanitisers provided
