Phlebotomy (Blood Test) Service

We are not currently offering phlebotomy (blood Tests) at the Surgery at the current time.

Blood tests are available at the following locations: www.enherts-tr.nhs.uk/services/blood-tests/

The healthcare professional who arranges your blood test will tell you whether there are any specific instructions you need to follow before your test.

For example, depending on the type of blood test, you may be asked to:

  1. avoid eating or drinking anything, apart from water (fasting) for up to 12 hours
  2. stop taking a certain medication]

It’s important to follow the instructions you’re given, as it may affect the result of the test and mean it needs to be delayed or carried out again.
