Blood Collection

Welcome to the West Lancashire Blood Collection Service (Phlebotomy) at Hants Lane Clinic and Ormskirk and District General Hospital

We provide an appointment-led community phlebotomy service for patients aged 14 years and above. For an appointment please contact the clinics.

A phlebotomist is a highly trained person who collects blood from patients who require diagnostic tests on their blood. This requires a skilled procedure to take blood from a vein in the patients arm by using a fine needle and special collection tubes.
