Our Services A - Z - Phlebotomy Services

About the service

The Trust provides a number of Phlebotomy Services within 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.

Our Phlebotomy clinics now use an online booking system for patients over the age of 16. To book an appointment, for a blood test, at one of our clinics please follow this link.

If you need to book an appointment for a child under the age of 16, please telephone 0151 430 1702.

Please Note - Blood forms must be brought to the appointment.

We would love to hear your feedback regarding our appointment system

Because there were significant queueing times for patients attending to have their bloods taken an appointment system has been introduced, with an on-line booking facility and also a telephone booking alternative or those patients who are not able to book on line.

We value patients feedback so would be grateful if you could complete our short survey below:

Please tell us the area in which you live?*

What is your age group?*

How do you make your appointment bookings?*

Do you find having a booked appointment time slot to be more convenient?*

If there are any additional comments you would like to make, please do so here:
