The Bromley GP Alliance Phlebotomy Service takes blood samples from patients who have been identified by their GP as needing a blood test.
Phlebotomy is the process of taking blood which is sent to the hospital for testing. Blood tests can help obtain a diagnosis for certain illnesses – or rule them out, monitor treatment and help patients and GPs manage long term health conditions.
Most blood tests only take a few minutes and are carried out by a phlebotomist (a specialist in taking blood samples).
How do I get an appointment?
If your GP requires you to have blood test, you will be given a blood test form; your GP practice will be able to book an appointment for you at one of the Bromley GP Alliance clinics. You can ask at the reception team at your practice to book you an appointment or alternately you call the phlebotomy booking line on 0203 930 0245 (Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm).
Appointments are available across the service between 8:00-18:30 from Monday to Friday.
