Having a blood test used to mean a long wait at the hospital but we are now able to make appointments for this to be done at the Reckitts Lodge at Clacton Hospital who are doing the majority of blood tests for St James surgery.
We did try offering blood tests in the Clacton surgery but the waiting room was overcrowded and we just could not accommodate this facility at St James.
It is an appointment run clinic and not a "take a number" clinic.
Please telephone St James Surgery on 01255 222121 to make an appointment for blood tests.
We still have limited appointments available at our St Osyth surgery on a Tuesday morning.
Reckitts Lodge is the building opposite the old part of the hospital building and is well signposted.
