Phlebotomy

Adult Blood Tests: A Phlebotomy Clinic is run from the Practice on a Tuesday and Friday morning every week.  These clinics are mainly for adults however bloods CAN be taken at the Surgery if a patient is over 12 years of age, as long as they are accompanied by an adult up to the age of 18 years.

At Hillingdon Hospital Phlebotomy is located in the annex corridor on the lower ground floor at the rear of the hospital.  At Mount Vernon Hospital, Phlebotomy is located in the pathology building (next to the postgraduate centre).  Both departments operate a walk-in service, so no appointment is required.  However this does sometimes lead to delays at the busiest times.  The Hillingdon clinic and Mount Vernon clinic are open Monday-Friday from 7am-4pm.  Please note that both department's doors close at 4pm so that staff can process any patients who are already there.  If a patient arrives after 4pm, they will not be seen by the clinic and will have to return on another day.

Children’s Blood Tests:  There is now a local Community Paediatric Phlebotomy Service for children ages from 2-18 years.  Appointments are booked by the receptionists at the Practice.   There are four sites which are as follows (PLEASE NOTE WHICH SITE YOU HAVE BEEN BOOKED IN AT):
