Blood Sampling

What we do

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the end of the session to ensure you can be seen.

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.  

The Liverpool and Sefton Phlebotomy Service (blood sampling) has expanded and will now operate from 26 community venues across the city.

The changes to the service will mean increased availability to drop in sessions with extended opening times.

Blood Tests

Some blood tests require that you fast (not eat food) prior to your blood test, you may drink plain water, please ensure you follow the instructions as provided by your GP. Click here for our information leaflet on preparing for a blood test.

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.
