The Community Phlebotomy Service provides domiciliary visits to housebound patients and non-housebound patients through our pre-appointed services for GP referrals only. Patients need to be registered with a Brighton and Hove GP before we can take your blood. This service is not available for referrals from any other source, eg consultants.
Domiciliary or home visits
Our phlebotomists are available to visit from 8am-3pm. Your GP will complete a ‘Community Phlebotomy Referral Form’ which is sent to the team. After we receive this referral you will get a call from the team to arrange your visit. This service is only available for patients who are unable to leave their home and who would usually receive a home visit from their GP.
This is an appointed service only and patients cannot be seen without booking in advance. This service is available for GP referrals only.
If you have received a referral, please phone 01273 265580 to book an appointment. Appointments can also be booked and cancelled by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
This service is for persons aged 16 years and over who are not housebound and require tests requested their GP. We are unable to take requests for children aged 16 or under. They will need to be seen at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.
