https://itx.ekhuft.nhs.uk/patheks

You cannot book Victoria Hospital in Deal through this link. If you wish to book your blood test at Victoria Hospital please telephone them on: 01304 865400. You can also book a blood test at the surgery.

You will still need a form from your GP for either the X-ray or the blood test before you can book an appointment.

Tests & Investigations

Blood samples are usually taken by the phlebotomist at Deal Hospital, Monday to Friday. This service is run by appointment and you should telephone Deal Hospital between 9.00am and 5.00pm on 865400 for an appointment. Urine or any other samples for the laboratory can be left in the tray at the hospital before 2.30pm. Most x-rays and scans are done in Deal by appointment, but special x-rays and scans are usually performed at either Buckland Hospital, Dover, the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, or the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital, Margate. Routine ECGs are also done at Deal Hospital twice weekly by appointment if your doctor requests it.

Results

Please allow a week for most tests. Smears take about a month and you will be contacted with the result. The test result department is open at present between 2.00 - 4.30pm. The automatic choice list on the telephone includes an option for dialling this department direct. If you are uncertain about a test please ask the doctor or nurse, about the procedure and how to get the result.
