Blood Tests

BLOOD TESTS (PHLEBOTOMY)


 


The local NHS (CCG) currently commissions for blood tests to be taken at walk-in clinics. These are staffed by Addenbrooke's either at the hospital or at community drop in clinics located at specific supermarkets. They do not fund phlebotomy at GP surgeries.  


For this reason many GP practices do not offer any phlebotomy service at all.  At Nuffield Road Medical Centre we continue to offer a service but we do not have the capacity to absorb all the work. Therefore we encourage patients who are able to do so please to attend one of the alternative sites below.


 


Addenbrooke's Hospital Out Patients Department CB2 0QQ


Weekdays 9am to 5pm


After entering the outpatients entrance turn left and go past the WRVS café. On entering the phlebotomy clinic please take a ticket.


Any age. No appointment necessary for adults and children aged 8 years and above. Children under 8 need to be booked with the Paediatric  Physician  Assistant - Ring main switchboard  01223 245151 and ask to bleep 154450 to book an appointment between 7.30  and  3.30pm.


They provide local anaesthetic cream for children (of any age) , but parents need to be prepared to wait an hour to allow it to work.
