Our Phlebotomy departments carry out bloods tests at both Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH. Phlebotomy is the term used for taking blood and means ‘the… puncture of a vein in order to remove blood’.
Blood tests* are carried out by Phlebotomists who are trained to NVQ level 3 standards and have undergone a period of assessment in these practices. Having a blood test usually takes up to seven minutes on average.
*Pre-booked appointments only.
