Blood Testing

Blood tests are requested by the healthcare professionals responsible for your care. The cells and molecules in your blood sample are analysed in the lab, and the results are used to screen for, diagnose or monitor health conditions.

You may be asked to attend one of our hospitals for a blood test with one of our phlebotomists and details of the main locations for this are listed below. You will be advised on the most appropriate location to attend by the healthcare professional who requested your blood test.

If you need help with finding the department please speak to one of our receptionists when you arrive at the hospital who will be happy to help.
