How To Access

Domiciliary or home visits
Our phlebotomists are available to visit from 8am-3pm. Your GP will complete a ‘Community Phlebotomy Referral Form’ which is faxed to the team. After we receive this referral you will get a call from the team to arrange your visit.

Walk-in Clinic
Monday – Friday from 8.30-3.30 pm (excluding Bank Holidays).

This service is for persons over the age of 16 years who are not housebound and require tests by 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.

Please Note:
For Fasting and Glucose Tolerance Tests it will be necessary to fast for 12 hours prior to your visit. Patients requiring a Glucose Tolerance Test will need to remain on the premises for 2 hours after the first test before being given a further test.

For all blood tests you will need to bring a blood form from your GP confirming the blood test.

On arrival at Hove Polyclinic please follow the sign for Phlebotomy, take a ticket from the machine on the wall and then wait for your number to be called.
