A SOUTHAMPTON hospital is stopping its drive-through blood test service.

University Hospital Southampton will be withdrawing the drive-through blood test service from Adanac Park.

It comes as the hospital was not able to secure a permanent location during the pilot programme.

However, the search will continue for an alternative location for this service after it has been withdrawn.

The final day of operations will be Thursday, April 28.

Alternative in-hospital locations are:

Southampton General Hospital- Monday to Friday from 8am to 4.45pm

Lymington Hospital- Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5pm

Romsey Hospital- Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 3pm and Saturday, 9am to 1pm

To access the service, people should first book an appointment.
