The Bromley GP Alliance Phlebotomy Service takes blood samples from patients who have been identified by their GP as needing a blood test. This service is offered to anyone registered to a GP within Bromley. If a blood test has been requested from the Hospital then patients should utilise the walk in services.
Phlebotomy is the process of taking blood from a patient to be sent to the hospital for analysis. Blood tests are used to help obtain a diagnosis for illness – or rule them out, monitor treatment, and help patients, alongside their GPs, to manage long term health conditions.
The majority of blood tests only take a few minutes and are carried out by a phlebotomist (a specialist in taking blood samples from patients).
