Blood taking (Phlebotomy)

Phlebotomy is the procedure of taking blood from the body. Phlebotomists collect blood samples from patients. The samples are tested in a laboratory and the results can be used to diagnose diseases and conditions.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust works with other local NHS organisations to arrange regular blood taking testing clinics at sites across the county. This means that patients who need regular blood testing are able to have blood taken tests done at a location that is easy for them to access.
