The chemotherapy day unit has its own in-house phlebotomy (blood testing) service, which we strongly advise you use. The blood results are fast tracked to enable the nurses to prepare for your treatment, avoiding delays. This service runs six days a week:
Monday to Friday in CDU 8am - 10am (last appointment 9.45 am)
Sunday on Ward 11, 9am -11am (last appointment 10.45 am)
If your treatment is weekly, you will require bloods the day before.
If your treatment is two to three weekly, you will require bloods two days before.
If you are attending for bone strengthening treatment on the Tenovus Unit you can attend for bloods on Tuesday or Wednesday before your treatment.
