Phlebotomy Service (blood tests) - Sefton


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
Who is our service for? 
This service is for patients who are aged 14 and over who are registered with a Sefton GP. 

What will happen at your appointment
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.

Your healthcare professional will give you a form for your blood test – please bring this form with you so we know which tests your healthcare professional needs.

If you are housebound, please speak to your GP who can arrange a home visit appointment on your behalf.
