Urgent Phlebotomy Appointments for GP Practice Teams

There are a number of phlebotomy appointments allocated for practices to book for patients who require an urgent blood test on the same day, or the next day

An urgent blood test is appropriate if a test result within 24hrs is needed to inform a crucial clinical decision about a patient’s immediate care, for example, the test will potentially help to avoid an admission to hospital
