Blood Sampling (Phlebotomy)

The Phlebotomy Service take 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.

Some blood tests require that you fast (not eat food) prior to your blood test.  You may drink plain water, but please ensure you follow the instructions provided by your GP. 

You must bring along your referral form (blood test form) for a blood test. This should be given to you by your doctor. If you are housebound, your GP will request a home visit for you.

If you live in Liverpool 

This service is available for patients aged 16 years and above. No appointment is necessary as the service in clinics is provided on a walk-in basis. All that is needed is a blood sampling form from the patient's GP, practice nurse or Consultant. 

Please ensure you bring your blood request form, or the Phlebotomist will not be able to take a sample. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the end of the session to ensure you can be seen.

Bookable appointments are also available at Kensington Health Centre, South Liverpool Treatment Centre and Breeze Hill between 11.30am to 1pm.

To book an appointment contact 0151 285 4548, between 9am and 5pm.

Housebound patients can be referred to us by their GP or their Practice Nurse.
