Phlebotomy (Blood Tests)

Thank you for your patience throughout the recent national blood tube shortage. The Phlebotomy Service has a team of dedicated Phlebotomists who are responsible for taking patient’s blood for laboratory testing and analysis. Please note the Community Phlebotomy Service is via Appointment system only.

COVID Restrictions

Please support us to safely manage waiting areas to comply with national COVID guidelines:

  • Attend your appointment at specified time – (you may be asked to wait outside if you are early or rebook if you are late)
  • Please wear a face mask to all appointments to protect yourself, staff and other vulnerable people.
  • Please attend on your own unless you need support for language, mobility or with memory issues. Only one chaperone per patient will be allowed into the clinic room where appropriate and they must wear a face covering.
Before Booking Your Blood Test

Blood tests in the community are by appointment only. You will be turned away without an appointment. If you are not confident with booking your appointment please ask a family member to support or your GP surgery to book on your behalf. 

Your GP or other Health Professional will decide if you need a blood test and how quickly you will need to arrange it. They will also provide you with your blood form that you will need to book your appointment and take with you on the day of your appointment.

If your blood form is clearly marked as URGENT, please book a blood test:

  • within 72 hours of request

If your blood test is marked as FASTING, please book;

  • an appointment no later than 11:00am to prevent low blood sugars / fainting

If you are asked to arrange a blood test before treatment or a professional appointment please ensure that you book;

  • at least 7 days before the date needed for treatment / appointment

If your blood test is routine, please book;

  • into the next available appointment slot within 10 working days of request
