About us

Phlebotomy walk-in clinics will be held at Samuel Johnson Community Hospital, in Lichfield, and not Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital, in Tamworth, from next week.

From Monday 6 April 2020, phlebotomy clinics will be running from Samuel Johnson Community Hospital and not at Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital, as before.

The walk-in bloods clinics will now be held in the Samuel Johnson outpatients department, with outpatients at Sir Robert Peel instead being used as additional capacity for GPs to treat patients in the community.

Opening hours for walk-in bloods at Samuel Johnson outpatients are the same as at Sir Robert Peel, although the department at our community hospital in Lichfield will also be open on Fridays for patients to have their bloods taken.

Opening times for Samuel Johnson’s outpatients department can be found below:

  • Tuesdays: 8.30am-12pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm
  • Wednesdays: 8.30am-12pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm
  • Thursdays: 1.30pm-4.30pm
  • Fridays: 8.30am-12pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm
