Adult Phlebotomy – Whittington

Add to CPD

Please note that this page now reflects the service during this COVID-19 period and will be updated as phlebotomy services change.

You can also visit the NCL GP COVID-19 website for the latest phlebotomy updates.

Practices are urged to only request urgent and essential (not routine) blood tests.

Please do not select 'defer to provider' when initiating the appointment process for your patients. This pathway is not in place for Whittington Health to contact your patients to book their phlebotomy appointments. Patients will not be allocated an appointment if 'defer to provider' is chosen. Please see further information on the NCL GP COVID-19 website.

Additional capacity for tQuest practices is planned imminently.
