High winds suspends drive-through blood tests

Addenbrooke’s Hospital is advising that its drive-through blood testing service at Cambridge’s Newmarket Road park is closed today because of high winds.

The service, which it's hoped will be back to normal tomorrow, was set up in August 2020 in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council to reduce the number of patients visiting Addenbrooke’s during the pandemic.

The speed and convenience of the service has made it extremely popular with patients.

The drop-in service is normally available between 9.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Fridays to anyone over the age of 16 and who has medical paperwork or a request for blood tests placed on the hospital computer system.
