In response to the increasing demand of blood tests on GP Surgeries, we are only able to provide a phlebotomy service at the surgery for urgent blood tests or for our elderly population.
Should you require a blood test, we will ask that you attend one of our local hospitals to have your blood test taken. Please click on the link below to see your options: Pathology: West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust (westhertshospitals.nhs.uk)
If your GP refers you for a blood test, you will need to book an appointment at one of these clinics to have your blood taken. If your GP has given you a blood test form, please remember to bring this along to your appointment.
Depending on the test required, you may be asked to fast for a period of time before your blood is taken. If you are asked this, it is important to fast as requested, otherwise the results will not be valid and you may need to repeat the test.
Appointments for blood tests MUST have been requested by your doctor or other health care professional.
