A phlebotomist collects blood from patients who require diagnostic tests on their blood. This requires a skilled procedure to take blood from a vein in the patients arm by using a fine needle and special collection tubes.
Our open access service is based in the Outpatients departments for clients aged 12 years and above:
We close on Wednesday and bank holidays. Ormskirk hospital can see patients who present with a blood form given to them by their GP or hospital consultant.
Please visit the Children’s section for information on blood collection for the under 12s.
