Phlebotomy

The Phlebotomy Department provides a walk-in blood service to patients from Bexley and Greenwich. Patients are referred by their GP and from outpatient clinics.

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS trust have Phlebotomy Outpatient Departments at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup, Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich and Erith Hospital. We also provide a phlebotomy service in 35 GP surgeries in Bexley and Greenwich.

Our trained phlebotomists take blood from children, from birth to 16, in specialist paediatric clinics and we also take blood from patients on the wards at Queen Mary's Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

If you have any queries concerning pathology services, opening times, where you can attend a GP practice for a blood test, or any special requirements please call the Pathology Helpdesk on 020 8302 2678 ext 4320.

Please note that the results of blood tests are only made available to the requesting doctor and cannot be given directly to a patient.

What services do we provide?

We provide a phlebotomy, testing and assessment service to local GPs, to our inpatient wards and to outpatients in the Bexley and Greenwich area.

Patients requiring a Glucose Tolerance test (GTT) should arrive between 08:00 and 09:00 only and report to reception.

Who are our services for?

At our main outpatient departments we provide a phlebotomy service for both adults and children over the age of 10.

Blood tests for children

We have worked with children’s outpatients to provide a specialised appointment-based, children’s phlebotomy service. Our clinics provide a child friendly environment, with a play specialist for distraction. Our phlebotomists have undergone specialist training to deal with children and patient feedback from these clinics has been very positive.

To make an appointment please telephone 020 8302 2678 ext 4320.
