Blood Tests

Marie Beckwith is a phlebotomist. If you require a blood test, it must be at the request of the Doctor or Nurse to ensure that the correct forms and tests are requested.

There may be a wait of approximately 10 days for routine tests due to demand. If the test is urgent your GP will arrange the appointment.

If a suitable appointment is not available at the surgery, you can also go to St Richards Hospital for your test. The Pathology Department is located on the first floor of the outpatient block.

St Richard Hospital opening times for phlebotomy: Monday – Friday 09:00 – 16:45.

If you need to call us for any test results, please call reception Monday to Friday between 14:00 – 16:00.
