Blood Taking Service (Phlebotomy)
Having a blood test
We collect blood samples from patients and send them to the pathology laboratories for analysis. In order to have a blood test, you will need a request form.
It will be of great assistance if you are able to remove your coat or jacket before entering the blood test room. When you enter the room the blood taker (phlebotomist) will ask you to confirm your name and date of birth. Your blood samples will then be collected.
The results of your blood tests will be reported directly to the person who requested your tests, usually your GP or consultant. If you have any specific questions about your investigations, please discuss them with your GP or consultant as the phlebotomist will not be able to answer these for you.
The blood taking service at York Hospital outpatient department does not currently operate a drop in service.
We continue to offer a blood taking service for patients who have urgent GP bloods requests only at the nearby Peppermill Court on Ramsay Close in York. Patients who have routine blood tests for yearly check-ups should consult their GP.
The York phlebotomy service has moved from the Nuffield Hospital to Peppermill Court on Ramsay Close in York (from Monday 14 September).
