130 million haematology tests carried out per year¹

Phlebotomy services are blood tests or blood taking. A prescriber such as a nurse or GP can issue a patient with a request to have bloods taken and for convenience and speed this can now be done in the local pharmacy, avoiding queues at the hospital or GP surgery. The bloods are sent off for analysis and the results are sent back to the prescriber. This provides access to phlebotomy services at a wider range of times and venues to suit the local community.
