Phlebotomy services based in GP surgeries / community hospitals (blood tests).
All phlebotomy services visiting GP surgeries will stop until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience.
During this period we will be working with primary care colleagues to plan a new way of providing a phlebotomy service across the health board.
Until this has been set up, in the short term, limited services for ESSENTIAL blood tests only will continue in the hospital locations listed below.
If you are already in possession of a blood test request form, please consider checking with your GP whether it is essential that you have the tests done before attending the phlebotomy department, as we must reduce the risk to both to you and other staff and patients attending these locations.
• Morriston Outpatients Department
• Singleton Pathology Building (not Outpatients)
• Neath Port Talbot Outpatients Department
Blood tests, sometimes referred to as phlebotomy, have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical tests.
A blood test can be used to assess your general state of health, check if you have an infection, see how well certain organs such as the liver and kidneys are working and screen for certain genetic conditions.
Please see below for information on blood test clinics. There are clinics available for patients with special needs.
