Community Phlebotomy Service

In addition to the phlebotomy service provided by the practice, patient have access to a Community Phlebotomy Service which operates from a variety of clinic locations.

From 10th August 2020 blood tests in the community will be by appointment only

This change is to support social distancing and reduce waiting times for patients.

GP practices will issue forms as normal and advise patients to book via the following link

https://www.royalwolverhampton.nhs.uk/services/service-directory-a-z/phlebotomy/

Patients will need their NHS Number and a mobile phone number – an SMS text message confirming the appointment will be sent to the mobile number provided. Anyone can book on their behalf.

  • URGENT blood tests should be booked within 48 hours
  • FASTING blood tests should be booked for an early morning appointment ideally before 10am
  • PRE TREATMENT blood tests should be booked at least 7 days prior to treatment/outpatient appointment date
  • ROUTINE blood tests should be booked into the next available appointment slot at the chosen venue

Face coverings must be worn during the visit

Patients must take their blood form with them – otherwise the procedure cannot be done
