Phlebotomy

If a doctor or nurse has requested you have a blood test you will be given a morning appointment with a phlebotomist. Please drink plenty of water during the eight hours before the blood test. All blood samples are taken in the morning so they can be collected at 13:00 and taken to the lab at East Surrey Hospital – this is also the case for urine, stool and sputum samples.

Very few blood tests are clinically urgent and the doctor/nurse will usually give you an indication of the time frame within which you need to book.  If you feel you are unable to wait for our next available appointment, we can print the blood form so you can take it to the ESH hospital and have your blood test done there. Please ask one of our Patient Service Advisors.

Please complete our Request An Appointment With A Nurse Or Healthcare Assistant form to book an appointment for a blood test.
