The booking service is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Who we are

Our phlebotomy service takes blood samples from patients who have been identified as needing a blood test. 

Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • Assess your general state of health
  • Confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • See how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning

Our service is available for patients who are registered with a Knowsley GP.

If you've been referred for a blood test, you can book an appointment at one of our clinics below by calling our booking line on Tel: 0151 676 5829.

When you attend your appointment

Please make sure you bring your blood test form when you attend for your blood test. This should be given to you by your GP or the health professional who referred you. If you haven’t received a copy, please contact the GP/health professional who referred you for a copy.  

Housebound patients 

For patients who are housebound we are able to offer a home visit. Your GP or health professional can make a referral for you to recieve a home visit if this is needed. If you need to contact the service about a home visit, please call us on 0151 244 3162 (an answering machine facility is available).

Please be aware that home visits are strictly for patients who are housebound. 

We work in partnership with GPs and other health professionals. They refer patients to the service when they need a blood test to be taken.

Our phlebotomists are specially trained to ensure that your blood test is as quick and painless as possible. They will draw blood from your arm to collect samples of your blood to send to the laboratory for testing.

After your blood sample has been taken, you will be given a pad to put pressure on the site of the injection to help stop the bleeding and minimise bruising. Some bruising may still occur. Most blood tests only take a few minutes to complete. The results of your test will be sent to the healthcare professional that referred you for your blood test. 

Some blood tests require you to fast (not eat or drink) before your blood test, although you may drink water – please follow the instructions from your GP.

The service operates a telephone appointment system, so please ensure you call the booking line in advance to make an appointment.

Information about blood tests can be found on the NHS website: www.nhs.uk/conditions/blood-tests
