GP blood tests are carried out by HCRG Care Group at Gravesham Community Hospital. The opening hours are Monday to Friday (9am to 2pm) – no appointment is necessary, people are seen on a first come, first served basis.

We thank you for your co-operation and understanding during these unprecedented circumstances.
