Addenbrooke’s Hospital has announced that its drive-through blood testing service at Cambridge’s Newmarket Road park and ride site will be closed tomorrow (Friday, Feb 18.

With a forecast of extremely high winds the service, which is based in marquees, will be closed in the interests of public safety.

The service was set up in August 2020 in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council to reduce the number of patients visiting Addenbrooke’s during the pandemic.
