Blood Tests (Phlebotomy)
Beacon Hospital’s Phlebotomy (blood testing) department is located on the ground floor of our hospital.
Our specialist Phlebotomists are highly skilled in the art of taking blood samples in a quick, professional and comfortable manner. We understand that some patients may be nervous of needles and will do our best to reassure you and make you feel at ease.
Blood samples taken are sent to our internal laboratory for processing as soon as they are taken. Some samples may have to be sent to an external laboratory depending on the tests required.
When you have finished having your specimen taken, your Phlebotomist will put a small plaster on the area that you should leave in place for 24 hours.
Results will be sent to your GP and/or Consultant. Your GP or Consultant will inform you of these results.
