Phlebotomy Service

The Trust provides phlebotomy services to inpatients and outpatients on wards and in outpatient clinics at both North Tees and Hartlepool hospitals. Housebound patients requiring blood tests can be referred by their health professional for home visits and GP patients in the Stockton area can ‘walk-in’ to one of our clinics at a number of Surgery locations.

Accessing Outpatient clinics

Our phlebotomy team will welcome hospital out-patient patients at North Tees and Hartlepool hospitals.

Just turn up during opening times and arrive at least 20 minutes before closing to avoid being turned away.

You must please bring your request form as otherwise we cannot collect your blood samples.
