Phlebotomy (blood tests)

If you have a blood test requested by Barts Health NHS Trust, you can use any of these locations, no matter where you live.

GP practices may have their own phlebotomy service and not all of the services listed below can perform blood tests requested by GPs. Please check with your GP.

Prior to your blood test, your clinical team will send you blood test labels or tell you where phlebotomists can print these.
