High winds suspends drive-through blood tests

Our drive-through blood testing service at Cambridge’s Newmarket Road park and ride, is closed today (28 December 2023) because of high winds.

The service, which should hopefully 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.

Patients needing phlebotomy services will be seen on the main hospital site instead.
