Changes have been made to the provision of community phlebotomy services across SE Hants and Fareham and Gosport.
In the Lee Residents Newsletter that members will be receiving shortly we provide details of changes to the phlebotomy services.
As a result of significant feedback, it has been agreed to revert to the previous procedure which means that, regardless of whether a blood test has been requested by the GP or the hospital patients can :
either go to their GP practice
or to hospital for their blood test
This means that both GP practices and Portsmouth Hospital Trust will now accept patients for blood tests based on where it is most convenient for them. Patients will no longer be redirected elsewhere. This will particularly help those patients who have difficulty accessing services and/or have a need for regular tests.
Please note that the clinics at St Mary's, Fareham and Gosport War Memorial Hospital are appointment-only.
