    Phlebotomy Service

    The Phlebotomy Service is provided to enable patients in the Central Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen access to blood clinics when tests have been requested. The service also runs drop-in Anticoagulant clinics, along with Enhanced needs and Paediatric Clinics that are appointment only.

    Where the service is provided

    Chorley & South Ribble Locality
    Blood test clinics are provided within GP surgeries across the Chorley & South Ribble locality. Days and times of clinics are available from the surgery and all are run via an appointment system; appointments are booked directly with the surgery.

    The drop-in blood clinics at Chorley Hospitals are currently prioritising only clinically urgent tests for patients as a result of reduced staffing.

    These urgent clinics will be available between 8.30am and 12.30pm Monday – Friday from 11th November.

    You should only attend one of these hospital clinics for a blood test if your doctor or consultant has instructed you that it is urgent and appropriate to do so. Please do not attend if you have not been told too.

    If you require a blood test which is not urgent and your doctor or clinician feels you do not need to attend the hospital for this then you should book an appointment at one of the community clinics available across Preston, Chorley or South Ribble.
