Blood Collection

New - Effective April 5, 2023
Patients must bring their appointment confirmation number to their blood collection appointment. Confirmation numbers are sent via email when appointments are booked. If an appointment is booked by a clinic, the clinic must forward the confirmation number to the patient or use a patient email address when booking.


The IWK Blood Collection Lab provides outpatient blood collection service for children and women. Other patients should select outpatient blood collection services through a Nova Scotia Health location.

In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the IWK Blood Collection Lab will see patients by appointment only with priority for urgent and time-sensitive patient care.

Book an appointment online or by calling the Blood Collection Clinic. 

If you require urgent bloodwork and an appointment is not available through the online booking system, please call the appointment booking phone line.
