About Us

​Please click the location tab to find your nearest clinic.


The Trust provides a number of Phlebotomy Services within our two hospitals, Whiston and St Helens hospitals and also in the community across Halton, Knowsley and St Helens.

Our phlebotomy service takes blood samples from patients aged 16 and over who have been referred to the service by their healthcare professional for a blood test. 

The results from blood tests can be used to help:

  • Make a diagnosis of illness or infection (or rule something out)
  • Monitor treatment 
  • Monitor the health of someone with a long term health condition. 

 

GPs and other healthcare professionals refer patients to the service when they need a blood test to be taken.

What will happen at my blood test appointment?

​Our phlebotomists are specially trained to ensure that your blood test is as quick and painless as possible. They will draw blood from your arm to collect samples of your blood to send to the laboratory for testing. 

After your blood sample has been taken, you will be given a pad to put pressure on the site of the injection to help stop the bleeding and minimise bruising. Some bruising may still occur. Most blood tests only take a few minutes to complete.

The results of your test will be sent to the healthcare professional who referred you for your blood test.
