Phlebotomy

From 1 November 2020, your GP requested blood tests will be carried out by Willow Group staff.

By providing the service in-house, we hope we are able to offer greater access and appointment times that are more convenient to you.

There has been no change for patients who have their blood taken at home as part of our domiciliary service.

Our new phlebotomy service will be for all Willow Group patients. Appointments will be at Brune and Forton Medical Centres from Monday to Friday.

To make an appointment, please book online through Patient Access/NHS App, our Klinik form or call 023 8231 1034.

If you are asked to have a fasting blood test, please ensure you do not eat for 12 hours before your appointment. You need to drink plenty of water to ensure you do not get dehydrated. No tea, coffee, milk, juice, cordial/squash or alcohol.

The surgery is closed for staff training.

 

If you require urgent medical attention, please call 111.

 

If you have Coronavirus symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss/change of sense of taste/smell), please call 119.

 

In a life-threatening emergency, call 999.

 

Willow Group will be open again on Tuesday 6 April 2021.
